Jack Millman LPs with Maynard Ferguson


JACK MILLMAN ALL STARS, JAZZ STUDIO 4 -- Decca DL 8156

Here's the great Jack Millman Jazz Studio 4 LP from 1955. Millman brought in a number of outstanding Los Angeles-based sidemen to help him with this recording, including one "Tiger Brown," who played valve trombone on the tracks Ballade for Jeanie and Bambi, and claves on the track Cathy Goes South. Of course, "Tiger Brown" was, in reality, Maynard Ferguson, but they couldn't use his real name due to record contract issues. Nevertheless, it's absolutely MF on this LP, and this is GREAT west coast jazz!
COPY #1. The cover on this one looks NMINT from the front. The back is clean and nice, too, but someone whote two "X"es and "50c" on the back with marker pens. Thus, a NMINT- to NMINT cover is only EX due to this issue. The disc has the rarer pink promo labels, and the vinyl, although clean and shiny, does exhibit some of the typical surface scratching that's typical on these mid-50s LPs. It plays with some definite background noise in some places, and in others, it's not bad at all. Overall, I'd rate this disc as VG+. Let's call this copy EX-. A solid and decent copy, it's just $15.00.

JACK MILLMAN ALL STARS, "JAZZ REFLECTIONS" THEN AND NOW -- Tootsie Records AW 14307

Folks, here's a RARE LP!!! It's a 1979 re-issue of the tunes from the Jazz Studio 4 LP, but they've been renamed, and in a couple of cases, recombined, in order to produce this interesting LP. These are many, many times rarer than the Jazz Studio 4 LP!!! I've only seen a small handful of copies. On this LP, unlike the Jazz Studio 4 LP where's he's called "Tiger Brown," Maynard's own name is used. However, they misspelled it as "Manyard Ferguson" on the cover. The tunes include Going South, Baja, Two Suites for Love, Subtle Hype, Easy Groove, Allright, On the Up Side, Cool School, View From the Top, and Down Home. An extremely rare and tasty LP -- straight-ahead west coast jazz!
