This is a standard compilation of Ferguson's hit songs of the 70's. I can's believe that the CD is $59.00 when you can get the original LP at a garage sale for about $1.00!!!!!

I had this on cassette some 25 years ago and played it until it fell apart. Maynard played the best trumpet I have ever heard!

Been in love with this album ever since high school in the early 90s when I discovered this album at the local public library (remember when people actually when to libraries?)

It has the right mix of well chosen songs - some jazz-infused versions of mainstream TV/movie tunes and others, pure jazz. Rocky is great to start off the album and this version made it as the Rocky soundtrack in the final Rocky Balboa movie (2006). There's a good bit of funk to Star Trek and Star Wars and if you're a Sci-Fi fan, they are welcomed additions. It does make me wonder, what mainstream media tunes of today would make good jazz tracks?

My absolute favorites are the high energy, super fast tracks - Stella by Starlight (incredible sax solo) and Airegin are so addicting and will get your "jazz" going.

This may not be the "Blues Affecionado's" favorite Maynard disc, but I love it! 25 years ago, back in high school, I saw MF twice in concert and he played many of the songs on this CD. My jazz band, in which I played tombone, played Rocky and MacArthur park. So, I guess I'm a bit bias, but I love this CD!

I really enjoy the Big Boss and I like the selections offered here, some of which aren't available on other CD's.. The sound on the CD is good and seems well done to me.
