Hear The Music! See The Music!
Recorded on the “The New Sound of
Maynard Ferguson and his Orchestra
1964,” this is an edited version of the chart (instrumentation 5 saxophones,
4 trumpets, 4 trombones, Piano, Guitar,
Bass and Drums) as composed by one of the most creative writers in jazz
history, Willie Maiden. This v.
works very well. What you'll be hearing is the professional version recorded by Maynard. Curnow has taken Maynard’s super-high lines and incorporated them into the chart so
that there are no super-human concerns in that respect. There is also the Pro
version available with original instrumentation. This piece has a great feel to
it, moving through a lovely melody to solo space for many players and back to a
cool, quiet ending. This one will make you and your audience want to dance. 5-4-4-4
