  • Description

    This is an interesting package that provides the Kenton fan the opportunity to compare three distinct editions of Stan's orchestra. The sound quality is excellent on the first two discs, slightly less on the third. The '59 band really screams on this one, featuring one of the best recorded versions of "Intermission Riff". The '63 Mellophone band tears through the set taking NO prisoners, much to the delight of the 4th of July crowd, who can be heard going absolutely nuts at the conclusion of "Malaguena"!! The 71' band is featured minus Stan, who at the time was recovering from surgery. This does not detract from the thrilling performance presented here. Arranger Ken Hanna's "Macumba suite" is performed and is ample proof that Stan's 70's band was fully equal to the previous bands, capable of heading into wild, unexplored territory with ease!! Detailed notes and great packaging make this well worth the investment
