MAYNARD FERGUSON, HIS ORCHESTRA AND OCTET, 1950-1954: BAND AIN'T DRAGGIN' (SPANISH RELEASE) -- Fresh Sound Records Jazz City Series FSR-2204

This great CD was released in 2005 and it includes many of Maynard's tracks from the early 1950s. It starts off with MF fronting what was essentially the Kenton Orchestra on the tracks Band Ain't Draggin', Short Wave, Love Locked Out, and Take the "A" Train (9/13/50). Next are What's New? and The Hot Canary (5/31/51), Roses all the Way, And So I Waited Around, Homing Pidgeon, and Wow! (2/25/52), then finishes off with Thou Swell, The Way You Look Tonight, All God's Chillun Got Rhythym, Willie Nillie, Hymn to Her, Lonely Town, and Over the Rainbow (2/19/54). Great, GREAT stuff!!! And a bit of trivia for you. Throughout the 8-page booklet that comes with the CD are pictures of the original 78 RPM record labels for many of these tunes, as well as an image of the 7" picture cover from the Hot Canary 45. I'm honored to say that those images are of the items in my personal collection, which I was quite happy to provide to Jordi Pujol of Fresh Sound to be included with this release. I absolutely LOVE this collection of early MF material!!!

MAYNARD FERGUSON, SAY IT WITH TRUMPETS -- Musica Jazz MJCD 1185

In November, 2006, the Italian Jazz Magazine Musica Jazz had a great article on Maynard. Shrink wrapped with the magazine was a CD which was sort of a "Maynard Ferguson's Greatest Hits of All Time" CD called Say It With Trumpets. This CD has virtually all of the GREAT, GREAT stuff MF did in his early years with Charlie Barnet, Stan Kenton, Pete Rugolo, and Maynard's own band. It includes the tracks Maynard Ferguson, The Wailing Boat, What's New, Brazil, Somebody Wants Me Down There, The Hot Canary, Great Guns, Invention for Guitar and Trumpet, An Orchestra, Blues in Burlesque, That Jones Boy, Jingle Bells Mambo, Lady Bug, Say it With Trumpets, Straight Up, and All the Things You Are.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, COMPACT JAZZ (JAPANESE RELEASE) -- Mercury EJD-1016

This is one of the rarest CDs of Maynard's material every produced. I have only seen maybe 6 copies, total, in the past 15 years. Were 300 pressed? Maybe 500?

I have seen a copy sell on-line for over $400.00.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, THE BIRDLAND DREAMBAND (AUSTRIAN PRESSING) -- RCA BMG ND86455

This is the out-of-print Maynard Ferguson CD from 1987, and it's the Austrian version. It differs significantly from the U.S. version, in that there is an extra flap on the front booklet that overlaps the cover partially with a yellow cloud-like graphic. This makes it look totally different than the U.S. version, and makes it a significant variety. The graphics on the CD itself are also significantly different. Like the U.S. version, it includes 18 tracks from the Birdland Dreamband albums that were issued on the Vik label in the mid '50s. And this Austrian version is perhaps 20 times as rare as the U.S. version.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, THE BIRDLAND DREAM BAND (RUSSIAN RELEASE) -- Label and Catalog Number Unknown

Released in 2002, here's MF on a Birdland Dream Band CD from Russia. It's apparently the Russian version of the French CD that has the original RCA tracks plus 9 bonus tracks. They don't seal these at the factory.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, A MESSAGE FROM NEWPORT -- Roulette RCD 59024

Back in 1985, Roulette had the Japanese firm Nippon Columbia press this CD for them. As far as I know, it only sold in the U.S. It's now long out of print, and very, very hard to come by. The CD cover has the same photo as the original 1958 LP. Tracks listed on the cover and the disc include The Fugue, Fan It Janet, The Waltz, And We Listened, Tag Team, Slide's Derangement, Humbug, Frame for the Blues, and Three Little Foxes. But there are actually only 7 tracks on the disc. The Fugue and Humbug are not on the CD, just like they were not on the original Roulette Stereo LP. Strange, but true. I almost NEVER see a copy of this CD, so if I have one available, grab it while you can.
COPY #1. Just in, this one is NMINT+, almost like new. It's yours for $30.00.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, A MESSAGE FROM NEWPORT (ITALIAN VERSION) -- Roulette CDOR 8931

Back in 1985, Roulette had the Japanese firm Nippon Columbia press this CD for them. As far as I know, it only sold in the U.S. But at the same time, they had Nippon Columbia press an Italian version of this CD, and as far as I know, it only sold in Italy. It was released by Carosello Records. This is the Italian Version. The CD cover has the same photo as the original 1958 LP. There are 7 tracks listed on the back cover Fan It Janet, The Waltz, And We Listened, Tag Team, Slide's Derangement, Frame for the Blues, and Three Little Foxes, and those 7 tracks are the only tracks on the CD. The Fugue and Humbug are not on the CD, just like they were not on the original Roulette Stereo LP. BUT ... they ARE listed on the disc itself, except that they misspelled "Fugue" as "Fudge." What a laugher. I almost NEVER see a copy of this CD, so if I have one available, grab it while you can.
SORRY! NO COPIES AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, A MESSAGE FROM NEWPORT (U.K. VERSION) -- Roulette CDP 7 93272 2

Back in 1989, Roulette/EMI pressed this CD in the U.K. The CD cover has the same photo as the original 1958 LP. Tracks listed on the back cover and the disc include The Fugue, Fan It Janet, The Waltz, And We Listened, Tag Team, Slide's Derangement, Humbug, Frame for the Blues, and Three Little Foxes. But UNLIKE the U.S. and Italian versions, The Fugue and Humbug ARE on this CD. So this is the only version with all 9 tracks in STEREO (other than the Mosaic 10-CD set). I almost NEVER see a copy of this CD, so if I have one available, grab it while you can.
SORRY! NO COPIES AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

STAN KENTON, A MERRY CHRISTMAS -- Capitol Jazz 7243 5 84646 2 7

I struggled with whether to list this on the Kenton CD page or the Maynard Ferguson CD page. The first 12 tracks are the Kenton Orchestra, and this is a 2003 re-issue of an earlier CD that only had the 12 tracks, and 11 of those those 12 tracks came from a 1961 LP with this same title; the 12th comes from a 1963 Capitol single. But this CD has a bonus 13th track, and that track is Maynard's recording for Roulette from the late 1950s of Christmas for Moderns. It's a medley of the tunes The First Noel, White Christmas, O Come All Ye Faithful, The Christmas Song, Silent Night, and Jingle Bells. It's interesting that they decided to tack this Maynard Ferguson Band medley on the end of a Kenton CD, but I'm glad they did. Maynard and his guys WAIL through this medley. And the 12 Kenton tracks are absolutely brilliant! They positively SWING! You won't be disappointed with this CD. It's one our family listens to over and over every holiday season. They appear to be out of print now, and are quite hard to find.

VARIOUS ARTISTS, THE SULLIVAN YEARS, BIG BAND ALL-STARS VOLUME 2 -- TVT Records 9451-2

Back in 1995, a small label called TVT Records released this disc containing various big bands performing on the Ed Sullivan Show. Recording dates are between 3/13/49 and 4/6/69. Maynard's band is represented on the track "Hey There" from 8/14/60. However, there are two other tracks with Maynard. Both were with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, and both were recorded on 12/3/50. The first is "Artistry in Rhythm." The second is Maynard's signature tune, "Maynard Ferguson." Wow!!!!!! These CDs are now long out of print, and I seldom see a copy. They're very, very hard to obtain!

MAYNARD FERGUSON, THE COMPLETE ROULETTE RECORDINGS OF THE MAYNARD FERGUSON ORCHESTRA -- Mosaic MD10-156

Folks, if you were about to be stranded on a desert island, and could only grab one set of CDs to take with you, this would be the one. This is, to my mind, the best era for Maynard and his band. This 10-CD boxed set contains all the tracks MF and the band recorded for Roulette, with the notable exception of the Chris Connor tracks, the Yesterdays/Indiscreet singles, and the rare tracks Bluebird-Land and Her Face (which only exist on the ultra rare Roulette RJB-9 45 -- two copies known). So ... except for these few tracks, you get it all -- everything recorded between 1958 and 1962 (although some of the material was released as late as 1965). All 5,000 copies of this set are now sold, and this one is officially out of print (has been for many years now), and the prices are soaring for used copies. At least two sets have sold on-line for in excess of $700.00 + postage and handling!!!!! I would encourage you to take a deep breath and put this one in your collection. It's truly one of the most important items and simply MUST be in every serious MF collection.
COPY #1. Just in, this is the first copy of this rare set I've had in about a year. This one is copy #2615 of 5000. It is 100% complete in every respect. The box is almost like new, NMINT+. The booklet is like new, and is likewise NMINT+. Same for the discs. They look like they were maybe played once, so, again, NMINT+. So altogether, this is a NMINT+ set. It's $600.00. But I automatically give a 20% discount on all orders over $250.00, so your net cost for this set is $480.00, and that includes postage, handling, and insurance. It's all-inclusive.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, THE NEW SOUND OF MAYNARD FERGUSON AND HIS ORCHESTRA 1964 (SPANISH RELEASE) -- Fresh Sound FSCD 2010

It's a compilation disc of the two mid-60s Cameo LPs entitled New Sounds of MF and Come Blow Your Horn. The recording was made in 1964 in Bayside, Long Island, New York. It dates between the Roulette Era and the Mainstream era. There are 20 tracks on this CD, and Maynard absolutely WAILS on these tracks. An absolute, positive, MUST for every MF collection.
COPY #1. This one is a clean and nice NMINT, with the only problem being two little indentations in the front paper on the right edge, where it got underneath the closure tabs on the front of the case. Still, it's a remarkably clean and nice copy. $12.00.

VARIOUS ARTISTS, JAZZ CD VOL 1 NO 2 -- Issued Free with Jazz CD Magazine

Here's a great compilation CD of various artists that I'm guessing was issued in about 1992, as it was a compilation put together by Mainstream for Jazz CD Magazine, Volume 1 Issue 2, and it seems to have a lot of the same tunes that Mainstream released in that era on discs such as A Taste of Jazz. Maynard is present on the tune Between Races. Most copies of this CD were no doubt discarded, long ago. I've only seen a very, very few of them. It came in a little paper sleeve, many of which were no doubt discarded. If you can find this disc, WITH the original paper sleeve, you've got a real rarity.
COPY #1. Just in from the U.K., this one does have the original paper sleeve and it's NMMINT+. The disc is also NMINT+. Overall, a beautiful NMINT+ copy. Due to its rarity, it's $35.00. SORRY! THIS COPY RESERVED FOR A COLLECTOR, 8/8/20.

VARIOUS ARTISTS, LIVE JAZZ FROM CLUB 15 -- Request Records 3-8005

Maynard's two represented tracks, Take the A Train and Got the Spirit, were performed live on 5/14/66. I don't believe this version of these two recordings exists on any other albums.
COPY #1. This is, I believe, only the second copy of this CD I've ever had to post on the website. It's quite hard to find. This one is like new -- NMINT++. $25.00. SORRY! THIS COPY RESERVED FOR A COLLECTOR, 9/29/20.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, RIDIN' HIGH -- Wounded Bird Records WOU 3101

This 2004 CD is a reissue of the circa 1968 LP. As you probably know, this was not the greatest record Maynard ever recorded, and arguably, it's the worst. But it's a funky attempt at the "rock" sound that would be perfected two years later in the M.F. Horn LP. Maynard was trying something very new with this LP, and it led to a lot of live concert work in England over the next two years, where things truly came together to produce some of the finest work Maynard ever created. You've gotta have this one, even though it's a "misfit" in the Ferguson catalog.
COPY #1. This is the first copy of this CD I've ever posted on the website. It's like new, NMINT+. $15.00.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, TRUMPET RHAPSODY (GERMAN RELEASE) -- MPS 06025 2759209

This 2011 CD was originally released as an LP in Germany in 1968 entitled Trumpet Rhapsody, then re-released in the U.S. in 1969 entitled Maynard Ferguson, 1969. It was then re-released on LP in the U.S. again in the 1970s under the title Trumpet Rhapsody. There are various German versions with different covers, some on MPS and some on BASF. But until now, it has never been available on CD (to my knowledge). Finally, here it is. Need I say more? This is perhaps the last major MF LP to be converted to CD, and it's been long-awaited. It was recorded in December, 1967 at the Sudwestfunk Studios in Baden-Baden, Germany, and MF was backed by the Sudwestfunk Big Band, conducted by Rolf-Hans Muller. Tracks include Almost Like Being in Love, Knarf, Ole, Dancing Nitely, Tenderly, Whisper Not, and Got the Spirit. It's one of my absolute favorite MF recordings, and other collectors tell me they agree with that assessment. Be sure you get one of these CDs for your collection. They have become quite scarce and are fetching upwards of $200.00 on a couple of internet websites. I've gone out of my way to find every available copy that was reasonably priced.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, THE LOST TAPES VOLUME 1 (U.K. RELEASE) -- Sleepy Night Records SNR001CD

This 2007 CD is a compilation of tunes that literally were being stored on tape, in a trunk, in Ernie Garside's bedrooom. Ernie was Maynard friend, fellow musician, and compatriot in the U.K. during Maynard's British years, and apparently it's been his dream for some time to release some of this great material. I understand these were prepared in a very limited pressing ... just enough to cover the costs so that another "Lost Tapes" CD can be forthcoming in the future, so they're going to be quite hard to find as time marches on. These are never-before-released versions, some studio, some live, of some exceptionally rare MF recordings. Tracks include El Dopa, Fox Hunt, Tenderly, Watermelon Man, Somewhere, The Italian Suite, Eleanor Rigby, The Fruit of the Loon, Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me, and Blue Birdland. Now honestly, some of this material is second rate, mainly due to mike placement, etc. But some of it is absolutely, unquestionably FANTASTIC!!!!!! I kid you not. I would have gladly paid for the entire CD just to get the track Italian Suite, which is a compilation of tunes originally recorded for Roulette. It is absolutely FABULOUS!!!! The version of Fox Hunt, with MF playing four different horns overdubbing with himself, is likewise just SENSATIONAL! Although I don't like this version of El Dopa quite as well as the Columbia studio version, it's unique, really stretched out, and quite worthwhile. You'll probably enjoy everything on this disc, although, once again, some of it is less than tremendous. But you MUST have this in your collection for the four or five tracks that are simply STUNNING!

MAYNARD FERGUSON, THE LOST TAPES VOLUME 2 (U.K. RELEASE) -- Sleepy Night Records SNR002CD

This 2008 CD is a compilation of tunes that literally were being stored on tape, in a trunk, in Ernie Garside's bedrooom. Ernie was Maynard friend, fellow musician, and compatriot in the U.K. during Maynard's British years, and apparently it's been his dream for some time to release some of this great material. I understand these were prepared in a very limited pressing ... so they're going to be quite hard to find as time marches on. These are never-before-released versions, some studio, some live, of some exceptionally rare MF recordings. Tracks include Give it One, Blue Birdland, In the Mood, OLE, Sunny, Eli's Coming, Bridge over Troubled Water, The Meeting of Shiva Shakti, LA Expression, and La Fiesta. Now honestly, some of this material is second rate, mainly due to mike placement, etc. But some of it is absolutely, unquestionably GREAT!!!!!! You'll probably enjoy everything on this disc, although, once again, some of it is less than tremendous. But you MUST have this in your collection for the few tracks that are simply STUNNING!

VARIOUS ARTISTS, ERNIE GARSIDE PRESENTS VRYHEIDS JAZZ SUITE FOR 4 TRUMPETS BY ROB PRONK (U.K. RELEASE) -- Sleepy Night Records (NO CATALOG NUMBER)

This 2019 CD is from a studio recording in March 1968 in Hilversum, Holland. It is now out of print, and comes in an LP-style cardboard cover. It includes Maynard, Milo Pavlovic, Benny Bailey, and Dusko Goykovich on trumpet fronting an outstanding big band. But let's face it, Maynard Ferguson is the star of this recording!!! This is an incredible composition by Rob Pronk and I was STUNNED to find that it even existed. Unlike a lot of the other Sleepy Night releases which have poor recordings of live sessions, this one is obviously a studio session and it is unbelievable!!!!! Truly one of the best of the best things that Maynard ever recorded. He is STUNNING on this recording. If you don't have one, jump on one of these for as long as I have them available. Only 100 copies were pressed and Sleepy Night says there will be no more!

MAYNARD FERGUSON, A MAYNARD CHRISTMAS (U.K. RELEASE) -- Sleepy Night Records (NO CATALOG NUMBER)

This 2019 CD is now out of print, and comes in an LP-style gatefold cardboard cover. It includes Maynard's band from three different eras. First is his Christmas Medley recorded live at Club 43 on 12/14/68. Next are seven tracks recorded on New Years Eve 1961 at the Redhill Inn in New Jersey. Finally, there's the Christmas Medley once again from the Chameleon Band in the mid-1970s. Inside the gatefold cover is a great story about Miles Davis decking a D.J. who didn't like Maynard's Christmas music. I'm not sure how many of these were pressed, but they sold out quickly during the Christmas season in 2019. Very, very rare!!!

VARIOUS ARTISTS, POLISH ALL STARS, JAZZ JAMBORE '69 -- JVR CD 006

In 1999, Jazzi Magazine, a European jazz magazine, released this special edition CD entitled Polish All Stars, Jazz Jambore '69. Apparently, you could only get a copy if you subscribed to the magazine. The title is interesting, because on the back it says it was recorded at the International Jazz Festival in October, 1970. Who knows! I would believe the 1969 date much more easily than the 1970 date, because by then MF had his English big band together, had released MF Horn, and was touring with the big band. Regardless, the interesting thing to all of us is the fact that Maynard put together a quartet for this festival, and he's heard on this CD in a live performance of There'll Never Be Another You. To the best of my knowledge, this is the only place you can find this particular recording. It's an ULTRA rare recording by Maynard, and very, very difficult to come by.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, LIVE IN ITALY VOL. I (ITALIAN RELEASE) -- Jazz Up JU-308

This is an extremely rare Italian CD of MF's 1969 band. It was recorded on March 22, 1969, at the Teatro Donizetti in Bergamo, and has Martin Drover, Ernie Garside, Hank Shaw, Brian Smith, Pete Jackson, and other of MF's British band in attendance. Tracks include Theme, Take the 'A' Train, Dancing Lightly, Watermelon Man, Alfie, and Got the Spirit. This is a very poorly mastered recording, and the sound quality is marginal. I only recommend this one for MF completists.
COPY #1. Here's the first copy of this rare CD that I've had in stock for several years. It's almost like new -- NMINT++. $75.00.

But due to those fine scratches, I'm going to call it EX+ and I'm reducing the price to just $45.00 on this one.

Released in 2006 by the English Vocalion label, here are these two great CBS/Columbia LPs for the first time on CD.

VARIOUS ARTISTS, CONTEMPORARY JAZZ MASTERS SAMPLER VOLUME I -- Columbia CK 46106

This is a Columbia compilation CD which contains MF on Chameleon, as well as many of the other big-name Columbia performers on some of their most interesting material. It's out-of-print, and difficult to find anymore. I've been pretty lucky in digging up copies. It has a distinctively jazz-rock and fusion feel to it. A very, very interesting compilation!
COPY #1. This copy is a cut-out item with a hole punch through the front and the back covers. The case is NOT drilled -- just the covers. Still well worth $4.00.
COPY #2. This copy is on Columbia Legacy, instead of the normal Columbia, and the end papers are entitled, "JAZZ CONTEMPORARY MASTERS SAMPLER" instead of the normal "CONTEMPORARY JAZZ MASTERS SAMPLER". A weird variation. This one looks just like new, MINT condition. $8.00.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, THE BEST OF MAYNARD FERGUSON -- Columbia CK 36361

Although the LP of this record is pretty common, the CD is quite a bit rarer, since it was a very early CD release (1980). They have brought outrageous prices on internet auctions in the past -- as much as $80.00 (November, 2001)! Come on, folks, it's not THAT rare! Over the years, the prices have continued to fall as more and more copies have been found. But still, it's not a super easy CD to find. I've worked hard to procure a number of copies. A great compilation CD with the tracks Gonna Fly Now, Mac Arthur Park, Theme from Star Trek, Birdland, Give it One, Stella by Starlight, Theme from Battlestar Galactica, Pagliacci, Main Title from Star Wars, and Airegin.

VARIOUS ARTISTS, SAN ANTONIO SPURS GREATEST HITS -- Sony Music Special Products A31978 SAC2 4007

Now HERE'S something you may not have in your collection! For the 1999 NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs basketball team released this CD with 21 tracks by various artists. MF is found on track 21 with Gonna Fly Now. It's a cool CD with lots of big rock hits. It hasn't been too hard to find these recently, but someday I'm guessing (with all the NBA collectors out there) that this is going to be a very hard CD to find. Grab one while you can!

I was playing this CD while driving around Ft. Wayne, Indiana a few years ago, and sort of re-acquainting myself with the best of the Columbia years.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, STORM -- TBA Records TBCD8052

Here's Maynard's 1982 album on the original TBA label. The version of Take the 'A' Train on this disc would make Duke Ellington HIMSELF stand up and take notice!

MAYNARD FERGUSON '93, FOOTPATH CAFE -- Avion AVCD 2003

This one is the great MF recording with the tracks Get it to Go, Footpath Cafe, Brazil, That's My Desire, Crusin' for a Bluesin', Poison Ya' Blues, Break the Ice, and Hit and Run. This is the original pressing on the Avion label.
COPY #1. This copy is used, but is in like-new, NMINT+ condition. $7.00.
COPY #2. This copy is used, but is in like-new, NMINT+ condition. $7.00.
COPY #3. This copy has MF's autograph on the front paper. Unfortunately, when the guy got it autographed, he must have taken just the front paper with him. He must have stuck it into his coat pocket and carried it around all night. It got a bit wrinkled, and there's a slight water stain visible when you open it. The disc, too, has some problems. It's got numerous scuffs and light scratches, and I would have sworn it wouldn't play well, but remarkably, I just played it, and it's absolutely fine. So ... a rather rough copy, but with a genuine autograph, and it plays flawlessly. Yours for $4.00.
COPY #4. This copy is not factory sealed, but it's in MINT condition. $9.00.
COPY #5. This copy is not factory sealed, but it's in MINT condition. $9.00.

VARIOUS ARTISTS, A CONCORD JAZZ CHRISTMAS 2 -- Concord Jazz CCD-4720

A few years ago, Maynard and his band pulled out their old chart from the '50s entitled "Christmas Medley" and re-recorded it for this Concord compilation CD. This is the only place you can get this particular version of this medley. Maynard is surprisingly strong on this version. Of course, the best version is the one on the Mosaic boxed set or an old Roulette 45, recorded in the late '50s, but they're out of print, and cost megadollars. This is the next best thing!
COPY #1. This copy is not sealed, but it appears to be in brand new, MINT condition. It's $13.00.

Here's the great 1996 Concord CD by MF and the band. Tracks include You Got It, Manteca, The Vibe, Cajun Cookin', Milestones, She Was Too Good to Me, Birdland, Blues from Around Here, and It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing. Swingin'!!!
COPY #1. This one is a super clean and nice NMINT+. It's $9.00.
COPY #2. This one is MINT, FACTORY SEALED, but it has a small saw cut at the bottom of the spine (a cut-out remainder item). I will take it out of the shrink and replace the case before shipping to you if you like, in which case there will only be a small slit remaining in the backing paper along the spine. The disc, of course, is MINT, never-played. Due to the cut spine, just $5.00 for this one.
COPY #3. This one is a super clean and nice NMINT+. It's $9.00.
COPY #4. This one is a super clean and nice NMINT+. It's $9.00.

VARIOUS ARTISTS, JAZZ 101: INTRODUCTION TO BIG BAND SWING -- Concord Special Products CCD-4918-2

This nice little CD comes in a special custom case. It's a compilation of some of the great swing tunes from Concord artists. MF is included on the track It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) from the One More Trip to Birdland album. This is one of my favorite tracks from the Concord era.
COPY #1. This one is brand new. The disc is flawless, and so is the case, except it was apparently a "remainder" item, and it's had a short black line drawn through the barcode. As a result, this one is just $4.00.

MAYNARD FERGUSON & BIG BOP NOUVEAU, BRASS ATTITUDE -- Concord Jazz CCD-4848-2

Here's Maynard's 1998 release. Swinging big band tracks! There are a couple of tracks I don't personally like, but the rest are the usual, high-energy, blowing brass masterpieces we've come to love.
COPY #1. Just in, this one is a super clean and nice NMINT+. Just like new, it's $9.00.

MICHAEL FEINSTEIN WITH THE MAYNARD FERGUSON BIG BAND, BIG CITY RHYTHMS -- Concord Jazz CCD-4869-2

Here's Concord Jazz artist Michael Feinstein, backed by Maynard and the band on this 1999 CD. It'll remind you a lot of the Chris Connor sessions from the early '60s. Maynard and the band are fine, but I'm not much for Feinstein, although he grows on you as you listen a while. Maynard takes several nice solo breaks. I particularly like the arrangement on "Let Me off Uptown." Definitely a must for every serious MF collection.
COPY #1. This copy is MINT, FACTORY SEALED. $10.00.
COPY #2. This copy is MINT, FACTORY SEALED. $10.00.
COPY #3. This copy is like new -- NMINT+. $9.00.

DIANE SCHUUR, MAYNARD FERGUSON, SWINGIN' FOR SCHUUR -- Concord Jazz CCD-4982-2

Tracks include Just One of Those Things, Besame Mucho, Deep Purple, Autumn Leaves, My Romance, Love Letters, East of the Sun and West of the Moon, Midnight Sun, I Fall In Love Too Easily, Lush Life, Just Friends, and Let's Fall in Love. The arranging is superb, and Schuur's vocal prowess has never been more evident. There's plently of Maynard's chops coming through, as well.
COPY #1. This copy is essentilly NMINT+, with the only problem being one small scratch on the disc surface. Just to make sure it's OK, I played it through, and it played flawlessly. It's yours for just $6.00.
COPY #2. This is a clean and nice NMINT+ copy. It's $9.00.
COPY #3. This is a clean and nice NMINT+ copy. It's $9.00.
COPY #4. This is a clean and nice NMINT+ copy. It's $9.00.

DIANE SCHUUR, MAYNARD FERGUSON, SWINGIN' FOR SCHUUR (RUSSIAN PRESSING) -- Label and Catalog Number Unknown

Here's Concord Jazz artist Diane Schuur, backed by Maynard and the band on this 2001 CD. I'm sure most of you have the U.S. version, but this one comes from Russia! Although most of the printing is in English, the label and catalog number seem to be hidden in the Russian portion of the text, so I'm not sure what they are. This one was very hard to get!!!!
NO COPIES AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

DIANE SCHUUR, MAYNARD FERGUSON, AND THE BIG BOP NOUVEAU BAND LIVE AT RUTGERS UNIVERSITY, APRIL 6, 2002 -- (PRIVATE PRESSING ON CDR)

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS IS A PRIVATE PRESSING ON A CDR. IT IS NOT A COMMERCIAL RECORDING. MF and Big Bop Nouveau headlined this concert with Diane Schuur at Rutgers in April of 2002. Copies of this recording are from the Dick Slade Estate. Iím not sure where Dick got this live recording, but to my knowledge it is not commercially available. There are 13 tracks, some of which I had never heard before: Blue Birdland, It Donít Mean a Thing if It Ainít Got That Swing, The Girl from Ipanema, Just One of Those Things, Deep Purple, Autumn Leaves, Love Letters, East of the Sun, I Fall in Love too Easily, Lush Life, My Romance, Besame Mucho/Blue Birdland, and the encore, Just Friends. MF and Big Bop are featured on the first three tracks, then Schuur joins them starting on track 4. I donít believe I have ever heard MF play Ipanema before (unless Iím forgetting some obscure recording). Schuur was really ďupĒ for this performance, with witty commentary and great vocals. And Big Bop and Maynard were really SWINGING behind her!!!! Total playing time is 73:05. Like many live recordings, this one lacks some of the fidelity youíd expect in a studio recording, but itís quite acceptable.
COPY #1. This copy is NMINT+. $25.00. SORRY! THIS COPY RESERVED FOR A COLLECTOR, 7/13/21.
COPY #2. This copy is NMINT+. $25.00.

VARIOUS ARTISTS, JAZZ IS COOL -- Concord Records PRO-4997-2

This is a Concord Promo release that comes in a little cardboard LP-type cover. It's got 12 tracks from various Concord artists, and includes MF with Diane Schuur on the track East of the Sun. Exceptionally RARE! I've only seen 2 or 3 of these. Released in 2001.
COPY #1. Here's a nice copy of this rare little gem. It's got a NMINT+ cover and NMINT+ disc. It's $12.00.

VARIOUS ARTISTS, HAROLD ARLEN CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION 100 -- Concord Jazz CCD2-2281-2

Here's a compilation 2-CD set of various Concord artists playing tunes by Harold Arlen. This one was issued in 2005, then for some strange reason, was almost instantly "deleted" by Concord. MF is represented with Diane Schuur on the tune Let's Fall in Love. Many copies were dumped on the market by Concord with large hole punches through the barcode in the backing paper. (Otherwise, they are generally in MINT condition.) Most copies will be like this unless I specifically state that they do NOT have a hole punch in the barcode. Now, here's the great thing. This is an absolutely FABULOUS compilation CD. My wife and I have listened to the entire 2-CD set many times, and the more we listen, the more we like this CD. The music is phenomenal. Don't miss out on this great CD set!
SORRY! NO COPIES AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, ON A HIGH NOTE (THE BEST OF THE CONCORD JAZZ RECORDINGS) -- Concord Jazz CCD-30214-2

Here's a 2007 compilation CD of what is essentially "The Best of Maynard on Concord." I think they hit this one pretty-much square on the head. Every track is great. Tracks include You Got It, Caravan, Just Friends, Manteca, Sugar, I Love You, Knee Deep in Rio, Close Your Eyes, Let's Fall in Love, and Birdland. This one was issued shortly after Maynard passed away. Quite a great tribute to his years at Concord Records.
COPY #1. This copy has a hole punch in the barcode on the backing paper (a cut-out remainder item), but otherwise, it's like new -- NMINT++. Due to the hole punch, this copy is just $5.00.
COPY #2. This copy is used but like new -- NMINT++. It's $10.00. SORRY! THIS COPY RESERVED FOR A COLLECTOR, 10/4/20.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, MF HORN VI, LIVE AT RONNIE'S -- Maynard Ferguson Music (no catalog number)

Here's the 2006 live CD recorded at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London, August 4-7, 2005. One of Maynard's last recordings, it's quite good, although a bit flawed in places (if you're a purist and/or don't "get" the fact that Maynard was in poor health and nearing the end of his life). It includes tracks such as Blue Birdland, The Girl from Ipanema, Frame for the Blues, and even an MF Hit Medley. It has that feeling of being at a live MF concert, with Maynard speaking in several places, etc. (Introducing the tune Frame for the Blues, he says, "so here's something I recorded in 1902." Laughter!) A must have, in my opinion!
COPY #1. This copy is used, but it's like new: NMINT++. $15.00.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, THE ONE AND ONLY MAYNARD FERGUSON -- Maynard Ferguson Trust (no catalog number)

Here's the 2007 CD -- Maynard's last album -- recorded at Bennett Studios, Englewood, New Jersey, July 25-30, 2006. Recall that Maynard passed away on August 23, 2006, so this effort was truly his last. He put together a great band for this session, including Wayne Bergeron, Patrick Hession, Serafin Aguilar, Mike Dubaniewicz, Chip McNeill, Denis DiBlasio, Jeff Lashway, Stockton Helbing, and Christian Jacob, among others. Tracks include Without a Song, Besame Mucho, Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone, Vita Bella, Dr. Fox Ph.D., Lost Horizons, Surviving Soho, The Days of Wine and Roses, and Darn that Dream (which he had recorded with Dinah Washington more than half a century before). A must have, in my opinion! Even though it was only issued in 2007, it's out of print and already very hard to find, perhaps because it was privately issued by the Ferguson family.
COPY #1. This copy is used, but it's like new: NMINT++. $20.00.
