For this late-period (1979) Stan Kenton recording, the bandleader decided to present five of his top soloists from the era: baritonist Roy Reynolds, Tony Campise (mainly on flute), trombonist Dick Shearer, drummer Peter Erskine and Ramon Lopez on congas. Kenton himself is featured on piano during two numbers, but none of his sidemen make very strong impressions and the orchestra on the whole sounds like an anonymous college stage band. Fire, Fury and Fun is a lesser effort although Erskine (and trumpeter Tim Hagans) would become far more notable in future years.

Kenton '76 is one of the last two studio albums by American jazz musician Stan Kenton and his orchestra, released in 1976, by Creative World Records. Recording sessions for the album took place in Chicago on December 3-5, 1975. The album was recorded after the longest hiatus the band would have from the studio due to financial difficulties and Kenton's growing health problems.

This recording of 1974, Fire, Fun and Fury, features six of the Kenton orchestra soloists; Roy Reynolds in baritone sax, Peter Erskine in drums, Tony Campise in alto sax, Dick Shearer in trombone, Ramon Lopez in conga drums and Stan Kenton in piano. The arrangements are superb and the 19 piece orchestra sounds at its best. The songs are energetic and exciting, but they can also be quiet and soulful. The solos are marvelous, as is all the playing. A very fun and enjoyable disc. My only complaint? That it's too short- no doubt because it was recorded in the days of vinyl records. But every minute is packed with awesome jazz. This album will make a great and interesting addition to any jazz or Kenton collection. 6 people found this helpful.
