I've owned this on vinyl for many years and it's wonderful to hear it without the clicks and pops inherent in the LP format. Thye remastering cleaned up the sound well without doing damage to the original sound. A great job! This is the greatest trumpet player who ever lived.
Absolute master of the instrument. Early Maynard but unmistakable genius. There will never be another. Maynard Album) his prime. If you're a Ferguson fan you will love this CD. The title track is sizzling as is Straight Ahead. There are also mellow pieces that spotlight some tasty arranging. One of my favorite Maynard CDs. Had a vinyl back in the day.
I'm not sure if this is the same album but that one is not here. In the 's, Maynard was only getting better. This album proves that. His high note playing became more tasteful and his bands still swung like no other. Also here are great versions of Benny Golson's cool classic "Whisper Not" and a tune everyone and their mom has heard, "Take the 'A' Train". Maynard sounds good and the whole band swings like crazy, especially the trumpet section and the sax soloists!
The only complaint is that LP should have done an improvised solo also! Also, this album includes Maynard's famous rendition of the Irish folk song "Danny Boy", a challenging piece combining beautiful low register sound and high note heroics.
One of my favorites also. Great playing. I got the album at Borders, Album). I don't know why it's not available on Amazon? See all reviews from the United States.
