Charlie Barnet CDs with Maynard Ferguson


CHARLIE BARNET, THE CAPITOL BIG BAND SESSIONS -- Capitol Jazz CDP 7243 9 21258 2 2

This is a 1998 CD, and it's long out of print. It's got MF on 8 of the tracks which he recorded with the band on 4/25 and 8/16/49: Bebop Spoken Here, Gloomy Sunday, Over the Rainbow, All the Things You Are, Pan Americana, Ill Wind, Claude Reigns, and Really? Of course, the track All the Things You Are features a stratospheric solo MF!!!
COPY #1. I almost missed it, but there is a tiny slit in the backing paper next to the spine (a cut-out item). It's so small, you can barely see it, as the jewel case is new and in perfect condition. The disc appears to be MINT. Due to that tiny cut in the paper, let's call it NMINT. $9.00.

CHARLIE BARNET & HIS ORCHESTRA, SWELL & SUPER -- Drive Archive DE2-42446

This is a 1996 CD, and it's long out of print. It's got MF on all 12 tracks, from dates on 6/22/49, 7/22/49, 8/49, and 10/49. Included is the great track All the Things You Are, featuring a stratospheric MF!!!
COPY #1. This copy is MINT, FACTORY SEALED. $10.00.

CHARLIE BARNET, WOODY HERMAN, ONE NIGHT STAND WITH THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS (STAN KENTON AS REFEREE) -- Joyce JRCDRG-1012

I'm not sure when this CD was pressed, but I'm assuming it was in the early 1980s. To the best of my knowledge, it's long out of print. It's the same as the Joyce LP with catlog number LP-1012. I only recently learned that it had also been released on CD when I was able to obtain a small quantity from a serious collector. It's basically the Barnet band (with Maynard) blowing on 4 tunes, then the Herman band blowing on 5 tunes, then both bands combined on a final number. Stan Kenton provides commentary throughout. This session was taped live in Balboa Beach, California on 7/30/49. 5 months later, MF would join the Kenton band, and surely his playing on this particular occasion had to get Kenton's attention! An absolute MUST for every serious MF collection.
COPY #1. The copy is MINT, FACTORY SEALED. $25.00. SORRY! THIS COPY RESERVED FOR A COLLECTOR, 4/2/21.

VARIOUS ARTISTS, THE ARRANGER'S TOUCH, YOUNG BLOOD (UK RELEASE) -- Proper Records P1404

It was hard to decide where to list this CD. It's got MF with Charlie Barnet, Stan Kenton, and Shorty Rogers. Since the earliest track was with Barnet, I'm listing it here. This is a UK Release from 2004. It includes MF with Charlie Barnet on Really? It also has him with Stan Kenton on tracks from City of Glass and the tracks Young Blood, 23 North, 82 West, and Invention for Guitar and Trumpet. Lastly, he's with Shorty Rogers and His Orchestra on Chiquito Loco.
SORRY! NO COPIES AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

CHARLIE BARNET AND HIS ORCHESTRA, LONELY STREET (SPANISH RELEASE) -- Lone Hill Jazz LHJ10303

MF plays on Bluehound Bus Greys, Things Ain't What They Used to Be, Argo, Who's Your Hoosier, Blue Rose, Lemon Twist, Lumby, and Hear Me Talkin' To You. Really GREAT jazz and MF can be heard prominently on several tracks.

CHARLIE BARNET AND HIS ORCHESTRA, REDSKIN ROMP (SPANISH RELEASE) -- RCA 74321421292

This is a Spanish import CD. Charlie Barnet asked MF to re-join his orchestra in November and December of 1954 to record the album Redskin Romp. Here it is, faithfully reproduced in digital format, with MF really popping out the notes! Tunes include Comanche War Dance, Redskin Mambo, Indian Love Call, etc. It's now out-of-print, is an import, and is very hard to find.
COPY #1. This one is used, but like new -- NMINT+. Yours for $15.00.
COPY #2. Just in, this copy is MINT, FACTORY SEALED. $18.00.
COPY #3. Just in, this copy is MINT, FACTORY SEALED. $18.00.
COPY #4. Just in, this copy is MINT, but I removed the shrink wrap to replace a cracked jewel case. $17.00.
