Stan Kenton's young "no-name" big band of the 1970s performs ambitious works by Ken Hanna, Hank Levy, Willie Maiden and Bill Holman on this live double LP. The musicianship is impressive and some of the arrangements are quite dramatic but not all that much originality is shown. A lot of soloists are heard from but few of them would have significant jazz careers after their period with Kenton ended; the main exceptions are veteran saxophonist Willie Maiden, trumpeter Mike Vax, trombone Dick Shearer and drummer John Von Ohlen.

Stanley Newcomb Kenton (December 15, 1911 – August 25, 1979) was an American popular music and jazz artist. As a pianist, composer, arranger and band leader he led an innovative and influential jazz orchestra for almost four decades. Though Kenton had several pop hits from the early 1940s into the 1960s, his music was always forward looking. Kenton was also a pioneer in the field of jazz education, creating the Stan Kenton Jazz Camp in 1959 at Indiana University.

Stan Kenton's concerts in the 1970s were exciting events, and this 1976 performance delivers the impact of a front-row seat, complete with Stan's introductions to the tunes and soloists. This brings back fond memories for me because I participated in one of Kenton's jazz workshops just two months before this was recorded, so I spent a week interacting with these talented characters. Overall, this album is a great choice for those who want a sample of the Kenton sound from late in Stan's career. For the best of Stan's creative world, look to his recordings from 1950 through the early 1960s. Live In Europe" is full of atmosphere and good memories, and proves once again why the Stan Kenton Orchestra was such a powerful and popular musical force for four decades. Warmly recommended to Kenton fans and those discovering the Kenton sound for the first time.

This year at Roseville, the Stan Kenton Legacy Orchestra is performing with Mike as well. Dates for the event are May 25-26th. The Stan Kenton Legacy Orchestra is the headliner each night for the evening concert. It looks like you may be having problems playing this video.
