This is a must have for any serious Maynard Ferguson fan. 24 great charts from Maynard and his Birdland Dream Band. Audio is suprisingly clean and clear for a recording from 1956, and Maynard soars! If you've only heard Maynard in the MF Horn series of recordings or his later work post-Rocky, you owe it to yourself to get your hands on as many recordings from the 1950's as you can. Maynard's playing is absolutely insane!

Must hear to believe! The supporting ensemble is amazing & Ferguson is his usual incomparable self! The result is sheer madness under technical excellence that is unsurpassed! We will never have something this special in our ears ever again!
