Maynard Ferguson is a unique cat. His super high register blowing is not for everyone, but his
bands are always first-rate.
The album is split between new arrangements of jazz classics and unique arrangements by Big Bop Nouveau.
(Refreshingly, no fusion or takes on pop tunes here, just jazz.)
As is usual in a MF release, the energy level is astounding ( you have to remember to breathe...)
My favorite cut is Chip McNeill's arrangement of It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing.
The musicianship and raw energy is breathtaking ( this may sound like over-hype, but take a listen
and you will see!)
The group is in top form and as tight as it gets.
I own many Maynard Ferguson albums, and this is my favorite (so far!).

MAYNARD FERGUSON SUPREME !!!!! Every song is upbeat and fast paced. You would play this cd at a party filled with jazz mongers from start to finish. All of the music is excellent. My favorite piece is #3 The Vibe, because of the excellent horn mixing and solo work. Enjoy over and over again.......
