Kenton '76 is one i've been listening to a fair amount lately, along with a lot of the Mingus Big Band's Gunslinging Birds. This is a fair amount of big band stuff.

Actually, the pacing of that medley is beautifully done - a lot like the earlier albums from that time like ”Now He Sings...“, “...Joan’s Bones” and those improv albums he did back then. It still holds up incredibly well even today.

After enjoying that album for about 6 months or so, I went on a summer trip to study with Gary Burton in 1973. When I got home, I found my copy of that album on the floor of my bedroom with the bottom left hand corner of the cover in shreds (with teeth marks!). It turned out that this small, annoying poodle that we had decided to chew it up for some reason. Luckily the vinyl was spared. I still have that copy.

That Kenton ‘76 album mentioned above too is a great album. Those Hank Levy charts are excellent (but I could’ve done without the Sondheim tho). One of Stan‘s last recordings.

My last dog loved to chomp on books and CD cases, but he never went for my vinyl for whatever reason.

I dunno why some people get turned off by improvisation. That's part of the charm, especially on anything Corea is involved in.

While I slightly prefer Light As A Feather over RTF's self-titled, I think they're pretty much unassailable up to and including Romantic Warrior.
