CD Reviews

The Best of Stan Kenton
Christopher Fryman | Kyoto, Fushimi-ku Japan | 01/01/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The neophonic concerts of the mid 1960`s represented the desires of Stan Kenton to present new and creative music with an orchestra specially created to deal with new music. The compositions are very beautiful, moody, almost classical but with space for some of Kentons great soloists, and still retaining the occasional `wall of sound` so famous in Kentons music. His commissioning of good composers needs to be emulated by more groups. This music might seem quite modern in todays world though it was creatived as long ago as the mid 60`s. It is historically important music and a joy to listen to. I would give it six stars."

"Neophonic is the ultimate adventure in great new music. It requires total attention and repeat listening to appreciate the depth and greatness of it. Kenton was the ultimate adventurer in new forms of great music, incorporating the best of Jazz and Classical to create a new form, and Neophonic exemplifies this.Great music from a great man who dedicated his life to the grand adventure of music appreciation! Listen to it and it will call you back for more, as it has for me for many years."
