Stan KentonAdventures In Jazz ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Stan reprises his famous modernist swing in a great little album that's one of his best works from the early 60s. The tracks are longish, with the mixture of dark shading and breakout solos that grace some of his best early work – and although the players in the group aren't the famous west coasters that Stan first brought to fame, they all do a fine job when the solo moment comes. Titles include "Waltz Of The Prophets", "Turtle Talk", "Malaguena", and "Body & Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan KentonAdventures In Time ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good- ... $1.99
Later modern work by Kenton – but still pretty darn great! The album features arrangements by Johnny Richards – clever explorations in time that still swing with that nice Richards touch, played by a group that features a number of lesser-known younger players, including Don Menza, who's pretty great on tenor. Titles include "Commencement", "Apercu", "Artemis & Apollo", "Septour From Antares", and "Quintile". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan KentonBallad Style Of Stan Kenton ... LP
Capitol, 1958. Very Good ... $1.99
One of Stan's excellent later sides for Capitol – recorded during a flurry of incredible sessions that really pushed the already-great Kenton sound over the top! Here, Stan's working with a host of familiar ballads – but in a way that completely transforms the tunes, and turns them into sound sculptures crafted on blocks of rich color, tone, and hue. The sound is incredible – with perfectly-poised horn passages that shift in the dark like a musical version of the Northern Lights – all topped off by Stan's piano lines, recorded in a magical way that floats them effortlessly over the rest of the group. Titles include "Early Autumn", "How Am I To Know?", "We'll Be Together Again", "The End Of A Love Affair", "More Than You Know", "A Sunday Kind Of Love", "Moon Song", "How Deep Is The Ocean (How High Is The Sky)", 'The Night We Called It A Day" and "When Stars Looked Down".

Stan KentonConducts Robert Graettinger's City Of Glass & This Modern World ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A seminal work in the development of the American jazz avant garde, and one of the most "out" records that Kenton (or Capitol) ever released! The whole album is based around two startling compositions by Robert Graettinger – "This Modern World" and "City Of Glass" – and both are chilling longform works in a distinctly modern idiom. The notes don't list the players in Kenton's group, but given the vintage of the album, you can be sure the band is one of his best. LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1955. Used ... $9.99
Contemporary concepts that are as bold today as they were when first released in the mid 50s! Stan's at the height of his powers here – working with the brilliant Bill Holman to craft some incredible versions of tunes that had become jazz standards, tired ones at that – but which explode into new colors and tones in the hands of the Kenton magic! Titles include sublime readings of "What's New", "Stella By Starlight", "Yesterdays", "Cherokee", and "I've Got You Under My Skin" – and the CD features bonus material that includes "Opus In Chartreuse", "Opus In Turquoise", "Opus In Beige", and "Sunset Tower" – most of which were arranged by Gene Roland, and are even more modern than some of the other material.

Stan KentonEasy Go ... CD
Capitol, Early 50s. Used ... $3.99
A cool collection of Capitol material from Stan Kenton – mostly sides from his classic years of the early 50s! The work here shows a lively, more upbeat side of Kenton's music – one that still has some modern moments, but which is more in a west coast big band style overall. All tracks are from the years 1950 to 1952 – recorded after the financial failure of Stan's Innovations orchestra, and before his New Concepts group – all sessions that were supposedly "commercial" in nature, to help Kenton recoup some losses – but which still represent the forefront of jazz on the west coast at the time! Arrangers include Shorty Rogers, Pete Rugolo, Gene Roland, Bill Russo, and Johnny Richards – and soloists include Art Pepper on alto, Bud Shank on reeds, Bob Cooper on tenor, and Conte Candoli on trumpet. 20 tracks in all – including "Riff Raff", "Dynaflow", "Easy Go", "Viva Prado", "Francesca", "Soliloquy", "Lazy Daisy", "Beehive", "Cool Eyes", "Bill's Blues", "Night Watch", and "Jump For Joe".

Stan KentonInnovations Orchestra ... CD
Capitol/Jazz Heritage, Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
A brilliant collection of work from Stan Kenton – recordings from his Innovations Orchestra, the groundbreaking group from the years 1950 and 1951, which featured players that include Art Pepper, Bob Cooper, Shorty Rogers, and Laurindo Almeida! The work features Kenton in some of his most modern modes – taking the broad range of colors and tones he first started forging in the late 40s, and fusing them onto some modern jazz ideals of the early 50s. The result is some incredible music that still sounds extremely fresh today – tracks that still have a swinging rhythm and jazz-based solos, but which also have a keen ear towards the 20th Century Classical Music of mid century. Titles include "Solitaire", "Soliloquy", "June Christy", "Shelly Manne", "House Of Strings", "Cello-logy", "Art Pepper", "Halls Of Brass", "In Veradero", "Blues In Riff", and "Coop's Solo". 2CDs, great notes, and 30 tracks in all!

Stan KentonKenton In Hi-Fi ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Near Mint- ... $1.99
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".

Stan KentonLush Interlude/Kenton Touch ... CD
Capitol/Collectors Choice, 1958. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Although Stan Kenton's always best known for his famous work with 50s LA reedmen, he's equally great at working with strings as he is with saxes – as you'll hear on this sparkling 2CD set! Both albums reunite Stan with arranger Pete Rugolo – the darkly modern talent who helped Kenton hit some of his highest heights in the early 50s, and who scored backgrounds for some of our favorite vocal sessions of the 50s. Both of these sides are amazing – lush backdrops of strings soaring, snaking, swanning about – as horns dart in and out of the mix, and occasional percussive touches create some even further tension. Titles include "Collaboration", "Opus In Pastels", "Theme For My Lady", "Lush Waltz", "Elegy For Alto", "Theme For Sunday", "Ballade For Drums", "Minor Riff", and "Painted Rhythm". CD

Stan KentonMerry Christmas ... CD
Capitol/Jazz Heritage, 1961. Used ... $6.99
A tremendous little Christmas album from Stan Kenton – filled with rich colors, deep tones, and a sense of majesty that's very much in keeping with the best spirit of the holiday! Stan's working here with Ralph Carmichael on the arrangements – in a mode that's still got the interesting instrumental touches of the late Kenton sound, but which avoids the atonal, and goes instead for the warmly unified sound of that incredible Kenton horn section. The set features both secular and spiritual tunes – and titles include "The Holly & The Ivy", "We Three Kings Of Orient Are", "Good King Wenceslas", "Twelve Days Of Christmas", "Once In Royal David's City", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", and "Christmas Medley". CD also features the bonus "Christmas For Moderns"! CD

Capitol, 1952. Used ... $2.99
Beautiful modernist work from Kenton – one of the first albums to cull his genius together as a whole, filled with the kind of tracks that perfectly sum up his unique approach at the time! If you've ever wondered what makes Kenton so great, this is the album to begin with – as it's filled with fantastic original tunes that provide a shimmering solo showcase for work of players like Lee Konitz, Frank Rosolino, and Bill Holman. Titles include "23 N - 82 W", "Young Blood", "Improvisation", and the haunting "Invention For Guitar And Trumpet", which features Sal Salvador and a young Maynard Ferguson. CD adds 4 bonus tracks to the original 10" LP. CD

Stan KentonPortraits In Strings ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $5.99
Beautiful work from Kenton – lush string settings that have as much power and imagination as his work with horns, and which come across with some really dark edges. The tunes are awash in color and tone – never sleepy strings, but edgey ones, as in the mode of Ralph Burns' best orchestrations from the early 50s. Titles include "Salute", "Minor Riff", "Painted Rhythm", "Ballade For Drums", and "Elegy For Alto". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan KentonStage Door Swings ... LP
Capitol, 1958. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A genius set from Stan Kenton – seductively simple, but featuring some great arrangements from Lennie Niehaus! Despite the title, the album's less of a showtune affair than you might think – as Stan and his group run through a number of popular tunes from the 50s, remaking them in washes of color and sound – working beautifully with the Niehaus arrangements to give them all the Kenton touch! Players include Bill Perkins, Jack Sheldon, and Niehaus himself – and titles include "The Party's Over", "Lullaby Of Broadway", "Hey There", "Bali Hai", "Whatever Lola Wants", "All At Once You Love Her", and "I Love Paris".

Decca/Vocalion (UK), 1972. Used 2 CDs ... $16.99
Hip 70s work from Stan Kenton – 2 albums recorded live in the UK in 1972, both of them in the best modern style he was using at the time! As with some of Kenton's other excellent 70s sessions, the players on the records are lesser-known than on his classic sets – but all are extremely well-suited to the Kenton groove, and are younger players that have a free-thinking approach that makes for some great solo work. Tracks are all relatively long, and have a rhythmic pulse that's really great – not really electric, but clearly informed at times by the use of electric instrumentation in bigger bands at the time. Titles include "Malaga", "Artistry In Percussion", "Chiapas", "Bogota", "Fringe Benefits", "Walk Softly", and "Ambivalence". CD

Although the tunes are familiar, the readings are extremely creative – and use Leonard Bernstein's original music as the starting point for a rich tapestry of tones, colors, and sounds that really open things up! Arrangements are by Johnny Richards, and very swinging throughout – and soloists include Gabe Balthazar on alto, Conte Candoli on trumpet, and Sam Donahue on tenor – plus some great standout piano from Stan himself.

Stan the man, grooving in a sweet Latin mode! The paring of Kenton modernism and Latin rhythms might seem an odd combination – but it works beautifully on this session by adding in rich tones and shades of colors to the lively percussion in the set! Kenton's orchestra is augmented by a great percussion section that includes Mike Pacheco, Willie Rodriguez, and Tommy Lopez – and horn players like Don Sebesky, Charlie Mariano, and Rolf Ericson really flesh out the tunes with some fluid ensemble work. Titles are mostly originals by Gene Roland, and include "Siesta", "Mission Trail", "Agua Marine", "Chocolate Caliente", and "Opus In Chartreuse Cha Cha Cha". LP, Vinyl record album

Art FarmerAztec Suite (first cover) ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good ... $9.99
A rare Latin outing from trumpeter Art Farmer – one that has him working with the mighty Cuban arranger Chico O'Farrill! The grooves here are hardly "Aztec", as Chico brings a hip postwar vibe to the session – a blend of American jazz and Latin rhythms that's totally great, and played by an all-star array of players conducted by Al Cohn! Side one of the record features the extended "Aztec Suite" – an ambitious number that begins with modern moments that are somewhere in a space between Stan Kenton and Ralph Burns' experiments of this nature, but which always has Farmer's trumpet as the center focus. Side two features tracks that are a bit more conventional Latin jazz – still played by the bigger group, but with an even stronger sense of swing! Titles include "Aztec Suite", "Heat Wave", "Drume Negrita", "Alone Together", "Woody N You", and "Delirio". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny RichardsSomething Else By Johnny Richards ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good ... $9.99
Some of the best work ever from one of the most under-acknowledged jazz composers and arrangers of the 50s! Johnny Richards is probably best known for his recordings with Stan Kenton in the early part of the decade – but when he moved out on his own, he developed a tremendous sound that was even richer, even more full of color and tone than Kenton's own – and which was often done without any arch-modern tones, yet still fresh and free of cliche. The album's one of Richards' first as a leader – and features a wonderful lineup filled with top-shelf players – including Charlie Mariano on alto, Richie Kamuca on tenor, Stu Williamson and Pete Candoli on trumpets, and Frank Rosolino and Milt Bernhardt on trombones – all players who really bring a bold sort of energy to Johnny's vibrant arrangements. The sax work alone is tremendous – cutting with a beautiful edge across the larger charts – and titles include "Waltz Anyone", "Turn Aboot", "Band Aide", "Dimples", and "Burrito Borracho".

A very cool record! The album's sort of an American tribute to the emerging French sex goddess Brigitte Bardot – one that features a gatefold cover with a wraparound photo of Brigitte, and some nice images on the inside. Music on the set is by Pete Rugolo – the master arranger who'd worked with June Christy, Stan Kenton, and others – and although Bardot doesn't sing or even make an appearance on the set, Pete does more than enough of a good job of conjuring up her presence with a good selection of jazzy tunes. Players include Pete Candoli and Jack Sheldon on trumpets, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Paul Horn and Bud Shank on reeds, and Laurindo Almeida on guitar. Gloria Wood sings on one track – and titles include "Arsenic Blues", "Paris BB", "Jeff's Blues", "Mambo Bardot", "A T'Aimer", and "The Night Heaven Fell". LP, Vinyl record album

Contemporary, 1954. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first moments of genius as a leader from saxophonist/arranger Lennie Niehaus – a set that has Lennie stepping out of the larger Stan Kenton orchestra, into the limelight with a hip quintet that includes Jack Montrose on tenor, Bob Gordon on baritone, Monty Budwig on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. The feel here is quite similar to the best Montrose/Gordon collaborations from the time – impeccably tight reed lines, but still played with enough sense of soul to bring in a good deal of humanity to the otherwise modern setting. The tracks are tight and short – and titles include "Bottoms Up", "I Remember You", "Poinciana", "I Should Care", "Inside Out", "Prime Rib", and "Happy Times". LP, Vinyl record album

Pete Rugolo first came into prominence with Stan Kenton's group of the late 40s/early 50s – and he had a penchant for creating arrangements that dipped heavily into modernism, but never forgot to swing. He went on to do some fantastic arranging works for the likes of June Christy and The Four Freshman – but also managed to cut a few great albums on his own over the years! Rugolo's work for Columbia featured groups that were filled with excellent west coast players, and in a manner that was similar to (but more interesting than) the work of Kenton, Rugolo gave ample space to the skillful soloists in the band. This album's his first for the label, and includes the tracks "Montevideo", "Bobbin With Bob", "Me Next", "4:20 am", and "Hornorama". LP, Vinyl record album

One of Duke Ellington's best albums of the 50s – a well-conceived session of dark moody tracks that revisits a few old favorites, hits a few standards, and offers a new gem that's right up there with the classics! The "indigos" title is taken very seriously here – as the album's awash in blue tones and darker hues – a bit Kenton in inspiration, but carried off with a lot more intimacy and sense of soul throughout. The group by this point is completely mature – and old bandmates like Johnny Hodges on alto, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Jimmy Hamilton on clarinet, Cat Anderson and Ray Nance on trumpets, and Jimmy Woode on bass all fit together perfectly under Ellington's direction. Titles include Duke's great "The Sky Fell Down", plus "Mood Indigo", "Autumn Leaves", "Tenderly", "Dancing In The Dark", "Where Or When", and "Solitude". LP, Vinyl record album
