Canadian trumpeter Maynard Ferguson is a dazzling stylist with an incredible range. He got notoriety through stints with Boyd Raeburn and Stan Kenton in the forties and fifties, who had heard the young trumpeter while passing through Montreal, his hometown. It was with Stan Kenton and the era of the rather self-conscious progressive jazz that he first came to prominence. Kenton fans applauded ... Read more in Amazon's Maynard Ferguson Store

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS RECORDING! January 31, 2012
By Barry M
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Most Tastless Albums He Ever Recorded!!!!! January 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Wow! This is one of the most tastless album recordings Maynard has ever recorded!!!!! Ferguson's Double High "C's" are just EVIL! It sounds like Maynard is going to split the bell of his trumpet in half!! Wow! This album has some of the tastiest arrangements and playing Maynard has ever recorded! HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!!! This album is second to the MOST tastless song Maynard ever recorded Jerome Kern's "All The Things You Are!" Kenton was even sued by Kern himself for what he called Ferguson's [...]-ization of his song! HA! HA! DIG SOME OF THIS MAN!
