All of the songs are from his finest moments in his early 70's big band selections. Back in the days when Maynard reached out to a newer younger hip audience on college campuses (as did Buddy Rich), this DVD is a must for those of you who enjoy his music. You won't be dissapointed at all.
For those of you who are just plain old fashionied back in the back of the band bass players, I highly encourage you to purchase this DVD for the incredible, one-of-a-kind bass fiddle solo at the beginning of the song La Fiesta. My fingers hurt from watching this incredible young bass player bang out a fantastic solo that is simply unmatched in anything that I have ever heard out of the bass fiddle. This guy takes center stage, and just owns the audience. Your fingers will ache too after watching this superb performance.
Maynard represents the last of a breed of big band players, and his style was the 'screech' trumpet. Maynard hits all of the high notes and then some.
Trumpet players take heed...........this is the cat who invented this style and made it famous.
Get this one for the record and your enjoyment.
The tracklist should be:
I Can't Get Started
Got The Spirit
Not a bad one in the bunch. Too bad there is no Hey Jude. Maynard fans, start clicking!
I HOPE SOMEONE IS CHECKING THEIR ARCHIVES FOR MORE MAYNARD MATERIAL. WHY NOT A DVD OF HIS CURRENT MUSIC. THE MAN IS AN ICON
These are classic performances of classic Maynard songs with an incredible wealth of backup talent. If you are a Maynard fan, you need this DVD.

Great memento to have if you are a Maynard fan since way back in the seventies. Wish more similar DVD's would be produced that included his other performances.Published on July 19, 2005 by JCF
