5.0 out of 5 stars Top of the Class October 13, 2009
Every Dan McMillion CD is a tip of the cap to his musical idol, Maynard Ferguson. The McMillion Orchestra's latest release "Nice N' Juicy" is also a tribute to Dan's wife Lillian, who passed away in the spring of 2009.

It is pleasing to report that this new 2009 CD is easily up to the standard of Dan's previous Seabreeze releases. In fact, this one ranks with "Give It One" at the top of the class. The sound quality and production values are first-rate.

As always, Dan McMillion digs deep into Ferguson book and comes up with strong charts which represent a variety of grooves and the breadth of Ferguson's music. From the 60's Ferguson band we get "My Funny Valentine": from the 70's the very popular "MacArthur Park", along with the funky, swinging title track, and a relatively short but very effective version of "Hey Jude." From the 80's band comes "Thriller" and "Lush Life." Surprising perhaps, but most welcome are two prime Dennis DiBlasio charts from Ferguson's final CD - the complex and hard swinging "Surviving Soho", and the reflective "Vita Bella".

Dan McMillion always chooses several charts for his CD's from outside the Ferguson book. In this case, he has chosen extremely well. "Love for Sale", the superb Pete Meyers arrangement for the Buddy Rich band, and Shorty Rogers' happy swinger, "Blues Express", really add variety to the program.

McMillion`s Florida based Orchestra is very cohesive and plays the charts with lots of spirit. Some of the band's fine soloists include saxophonists David Moss and Bobbie (or Bobby) DeAngelis; trombonists Keith Oshiro and Chris Clifton; trumpeters John Robinson and Matt McCarthy; and pianist Richard Drexler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice N' Juicy November 18, 2009
Verified Purchase
The album was excellent and we had a review within our Family and everyone loved it.
Individual Solos were very profesional and sharp and well worth many listens, especially
in the car where the sound can be at full blast.
I enjoyed every moment of the experience of listening and I hope to continue the enjoyment
for a long time.
We should be hearing more of this album in the UK, if it can be arranged.

2.0 out of 5 stars not my favorite from Dan July 9, 2011
Verified Purchase
Unlike the previous two reviewers, I found this performance to be a bit uninspired, especially when compared to Dan's earlier recordings. The best track on the disc is Love for Sale, ironically NOT an arrangement for Maynard Ferguson's band. The sound quality is up to Sea Breeze's usual standards and should please all listeners. Still, I found myself only wanting to revisit the one track, and not any of the rest.
