Stan Kenton Orchestra - City of Glass (Capitol)

I just picked this up a week ago; pretty impressive stuff. On the other hand, it will probably remain my sole Kenton disc...

Yeah, I bought it strictly to check out what Graettinger was all about. I've tried Kenton before (I'm not sure what, the "Ghastly Loud Concerto" or some such ;) ) but was definitely underwhelmed. This one is impressive!

Stan Kenton Orchestra - City of Glass (Capitol)

I really like this disc. I must admit, some of Graettinger's writing/arranging gives me nightmares! Kinda spooky stuff, no?

As for Kenton himself, I absolutely adore the 1940s-early 1950s material, but a good amount of the material after this leaves me cold. The man could put together a band, though, and I don't care if the band swings or not when it comes to City of Glass. It's very rich in composition and arrangement.

and a real sleeper for those of you who are in to slightly more "out" fare:

Killer disc with some of my favorite Kowald so far as well as great performances from all involved. I've not been a huge fan of Assif Tsahar but this disc smokes! I played it twice straight through driving up from Boston last night, which is very rare for me.
