Biography

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

This is one of my favorite newer Maynard Ferguson albums. The group is simply great, and MF gives a lot of personality to the music. For someone of his age at the time (mid-sixties) his playing as absolutely astonishing. It's pretty amazing for any age actually. This whole album is full of energy and the charts are great, fun and swinging. Maynard really gets into something on "A Night In Tunisia", and he improvises with ease and control in the upper register, as always. The arrangement is a bit weird at times, and Maynard plays off the theme in an odd way. He also makes a great harmon mute solo at the end in dedication to Dizzy Gillespie, even using a mute that was given to him as a gift from Dizzy himself! There is a lot of good solo work on this tune. "In A Mellow Tone", a great remake of the Ellington classic, is probably my favorite performance here. The trumpets come in screaming right away, and then Walter White takes a really cool muted solo, wonderfully constructed and played. Then Maynard quotes "The Man I Love" and goes crazy, as expected. The lead trumpet of Roger Ingram is very prominent here, and he stays accurate throughout the song. The ensemble parts are brilliant. "St. Thomas", the fun Sonny Rollins composition, is a great chart given a latin feel, and a lot of people put in great soloing, especially the percussionists. They were perfect for this arrangement. On "Fox Hunt", Walter White and Maynard go at it, and Walter stands strong. His solo is crazy, well constructed yet again with brilliant high-note work/chops and crazy technique! Maynard fares well also, and it's fun to hear them go back and forth. Unfortunately, the sound quality of this track is not quite as good and some things sound a bit weird.Read more ›

I've had this CD on my all time favorite list for some time now and just bought a copy for a friend. This live recording is simply spectacular. I saw Maynard Ferguson play at Newtown (CT) High School not long before he died and shortly before I left CT in 2005. He was still remarkable at age 77 I believe and the young men in the band with him looked as if they could have been his grandchildren but they were over the top gifted. The sound on this CD reminds me very emotionally of that magical night I spent in Newtown listening to Mr. Ferguson's stunning big band. Buy this CD, listen to it as loud as you can tolerate it, and ask yourself if there was ever more musical energy harnessed in a single concert. That said, if you need to get your blood pressure and heart rate back down to near normal, just listen again and again to their rendition of the Duke Ellington composition, "In A Mellow Tone." Really, just buy this CD and have a ball.

DOE MAYNARD FERGUSON HAVE A SONG TITLED, ONE MORE TIME , OR ONE MO TIME? I BELIEVE IT'S COULD BE A LIVE VERSION, NOT REALLY SURE. TOWARDS END OF SONG HE SAYS, ONE MORE TIME! THEN STARTS JAMING AGAIN. IF ANY ONE KNOWS THIS TITLE, I WOULD GREATLY APPRICIATE IT.

THANKS,

RICK DEAR

THIS ALBUM IS EXCELLENT! THE ARRANGEMENTS ARE BIG AND THE BAND SWINGS, LED BY ONE OF MAYNARD'S STRONGEST TRUMPET SECTIONS EVER. THE HIGH ENERGY OF THE BAND AND MAYNARD COMES ACROSS WONDERFULLY! (BY THE WAY, THE BASS PLAYER ON THIS ALBUM, NATHAN BERG, WAS 17 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME OF THE RECORDING!)
