"If you are very, very dense and by a Maynard Ferguson cd not wanting a big, brassy sound.....You shouldn't be listening to music ever. In short this is a fantastic cd. Including timeless songs such as the searing trumpet feature of "Maria" and of course the one you almost always hear at a Maynard show, "Blue Birdland" the band is tight with one another, the solos go somewhere with excellent melodic ideas and of course Maynard Ferguson in his younger days with that huge sound that we all know and love him for. A must have for any Maynard fan."
The Golden Sound

"This was one of MF's great bands - Randy Johnson on drums, Pete Jackson on the keys, Linn Bivano as lead trumpet. True, the group was primarily British flavored, but any music lover knows music is the universal language, and these cats have the golden touch. The orginal "Maria" sends chills down your spine with the masters soaring sound. The ensembles are great and face it, if you ever had the chance to hear Maynard in concert in the 1970's, this album - and volume II, will take you back to the golden age and the golden sound of the man. The only drawback, and a very minor one, is the conversion from the old original analog tape to digital seems a little "flat" but the selection is most definately a worthwhile addition to your Maynard library."
