Outstanding and addictive

"While I have only recently become a Stan Kenton fan, I would recommend this album to ANYONE who appreciates jazz. It combines the hard-hitting brass that was Kenton's signature with the Latin rhythms (mentioned above) that swing nicely. The Johnny Richards arrangements and compositions really create an album that you will want to listen to all the way through -- LOUDLY! Critics held mixed views of some of Kenton's work, but I have yet to hear of anyone who would give this less than five stars.If you have not yet listened to Stan Kenton, this is a great place to start. 'Cuban Fire' is energetic and innovative without going off the edge of experimentation. I have come to seriously enjoy Kenton's music on many albums, but this is good enough to be one of my 'desert island' selections. Even the bonus tracks are welcome, as they essentially maintain the style of the original album. Highly recommended."
Lawdy, that's good stuff

"I bought this based on the previous reviews. To call them just faint praise is gross understatement. Even if you didn't study to Stan while in college (on vinyl no less), you will enjoy this CD. Given the opportunity whilst my wife was out shopping and the neighbor was gone, the Bose system was cranking out fabulous sounds (the cat did go hide under the bed). Absolutely a must-have if you appreciate Kenton."

"This is Kenton at his best, and that is saying a lot. He was one of the most innovative and exciting artists in the history of jazz. This album is pure Kenton, with powerful brass, a thundering rhythm section, and highly skillful arrangements. This disc includes some tunes from a later recording session that aren't quite as good as the actual Cuban Fire sessions but are a valuable bonus to an album that is essential for any music fan. This is a mandatory purchase."
