Howard Rumsey CDs with Maynard Ferguson


HOWARD RUMSEY'S LIGHTHOUSE ALL-STARS, MEXICAN PASSPORT -- Contemporary CCD-14077-2

Here's a great west coast jazz CD which has Maynard playing with the Lighthouse All-Stars on the tracks La Soncailli and Viva Zapata! Great jazz!!!
COPY #1. This one has a tiny hole in the rear barcode. I almost missed it as it's so small and almost totally closed up. Still, it's a cut-out item. Otherwise, this is a NMINT++. Due to that tiny hole it's just $7.00.

HOWARD RUMSEY'S LIGHTHOUSE ALL-STARS, SUNDAY JAZZ A LA LIGHTHOUSE VOL. 1 -- Original Jazz Classics OJCCD-151-2

This CD is the 1991 re-issue of the great Contemporary Records LP release C3501. Recorded at the Lighthouse nightclub, in Hermosa Beach, California, in 1953, and released later that year, MF is jamming with Howard Rumsey's All-Stars. Fantastic west coast jazz from the height of the era. He's particularly noteworthy soloing in "Four Others."
