Overview

This double LP with its lengthy liner notes does not give a complete listing of the personnel of Stan Kenton's 1972 orchestra; an unintentional but ironically understandable omission because Kenton's young band had few original personalities at this point. Other than veteran Willie Maiden (heard here on baritone), the soloists are at best semi-obscure. However, the musicianship is flawless and the repertoire for this Stan Kenton Today set is dominated by old classics including "Malagueña," "Intermission Riff," "Interlude," "Artistry in Percussion" and naturally, "The Peanut Vendor." Fans of college stage bands should enjoy this spirited music.

The personnel here may not all have been Kenton's more well known, but the energy in this band is awesome...Checkout MALAGUENA and MALAGA. The opener is great and has several Kenton standards. I think this also has Stan's most sensitive playing of his theme. If you love Kenton, this concert is just great..
