CD Reviews

Excellent big band jazz
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Not only have I purchased the record (back when it was on vinyl) I attended the concert and had Maynard autograph my record for me. The music is vintage big-band Maynard Ferguson, which is a plus or a minus, depending on your perspective. The choice of music varied, the performances are tight, and the sound quality is good. This is after his "pop" phase in the late 70's, which is a plus. I prefer live recordings, which is why it did not recieve 5 stars from me. A good addition to a collection if you need some good Maynard while he still had a full touring big band. I have enjoyed this record for over fifteen years."
A great, addictive listen

"I'm an avid jazz player and a fan of any kind of jazz. My old band director led me toward this CD, and now its one of the most listned to songs on my mp3 player! A good mixture of upbeat, funky, and classic jazz, this CD is a great listen no matter what kind of jazz your looking for. My only complaint, if I had any, would be that Maynard is screaming in the stratosphere about 99.9% of the time. In his defense though, I feel like the licks and riffs that he pulls off at those insane levels are extremely tasteful and fit the style perfectly. All in all, this is a GREAT buy!"

"After having the opportuity to see and to play with Maynard live, I have to recomand that every Jazz student should own either this CD or another of his. Knowing the abilities of him and his musicians it is amazing to listen to a living legend. So I hope everyone can experience some Maynard Ferguson."
