--This recording is a finalist in the 56th Grammys for the category of Best Instrumental Arrangement. . The Arrangement finalist is 'Invitation'.
This 'tribute' to Stan Kenton and his musical mission impresses and holds true to what Kenton was all about. Besides new originals and a few new arrangements of standards, there are three adventurous new treatments of Kenton titles…a fitting tribute indeed from this jazz ‘’orchestra’’. Recorded at Capital Studios - in the same studio - on the exact same date (Nov. 1) that Kenton did his first recording session in 1940, the energy captured is incredible!
The critically acclaimed KIM RICHMOND CONCERT JAZZ ORCHESTRA was formed to provide a workshop for major concert works that include elements of both large ensemble jazz with free-swinging improvisation and symphonic colors and textures. This is truly a large jazz (orchestra) ensemble with expanded instrumentation contributing to the symphonic nature of the group…by definition, an authentic large jazz ensemble - the real deal!
‘’…The twenty-four piece Kim Richmond Concert Jazz Orchestra boasts a full roster of instrumentation, including double reeds and French horns, for a sound that is somewhat rare in the professional jazz world - Lush and multi-layered - a full range of color and emotion. The word ‘’symphonic’’ comes to mind with so many deftly-woven textures underlying the free-swinging improvisations…’’
