Kenton '76

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This reasonably enjoyable LP features the Stan Kenton Orchestra during its final period. The ensemble sound remained impressive but among the sidemen only trumpeter Tim Hagans and to a lesser extent bassist Dave Stone would go on to greater heights, although baritonist Greg Smith is impressive on his feature, "A Smith Named Greg." Hank Levy contributed three of the charts, "Tiburon" is Bill Holman's, and Kenton's piano is featured on the two ballads "Send in the Clowns" and "My Funny Valentine." This is not one of the major Stan Kenton albums, but the set will be enjoyed by fans of college stage bands.

    KENTON '76 (1976)

    This is one of several albums Stan Kenton recorded in the 70's (not 50's) with a very young, and very talented group of musicians. Kenton '76 is the masterpiece of this era in the leaders long and storied career. "Send In The Clowns" is the gem of the set, but all are truly Kenton as we'll always remember him.
