Kenton In Hi-Fi

LP (Item 6966) Capitol, 1956 — Condition: Very Good+

Easily the most successful album that Stan Kenton ever recorded – a brilliant reworking of older Kenton band standards, done with the dynamics of the 50s hi fi scene! The album's a much-needed one to any fan of Stan's genius – as the tunes are presented here in recordings that really sparkle a lot more than their original 40s readings – recordings that not only benefit from the better fidelity of the time, but also from Kenton's finer-tuning on the arrangements, in a way that pushes his original vision even more strongly than before. Players include Lennie Niehaus, Maynard Ferguson, Pete Candoli, Jack Nimitz, Vido Musso, and Bill Perkins – and titles include "Artistry Jumps", "Interlude", "Minor Riff", "Painted Rhythm", "Southern Scandal", and "Eager Beaver".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Stage Door Swings
Capitol, 1958. Very Good
A genius set from Stan Kenton – seductively simple, but featuring some great arrangements from Lennie Niehaus!

Stan Kenton

Journey To Capricorn
Creative World, 1976. Very Good
One of the best of Stan's mid 70s albums – a very hip set of big band tracks that swings with a fluid and soulful approach that you wouldn't normally associate with the Kenton groove! In a way, the overall feel here is somewhere in the territory of some of Woody Herman's excellent early 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wishful Thinking
Capitol, 1984. Near Mint-
Smooth fusion from one of the greats – and although an 80s set, a record that still holds onto most of the best warmth of Earl Klugh's earlier years! The production is surprisingly laidback at points – never too many 80s gimmicks or easy attempts at a hit – and Earl plays with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Satin Affair
Capitol, 1961. Near Mint-
An early 60s LPs by George Shearing with him at his most outwardly romantic, and you might add cinematic to that. Shearing's ultra-melodic touch on the keys gets paired here with sweeping string arrangements by him and Billy May on a nice set of standards. Tracks include "Early Autumn", ...
