Comments

All tunes also available on EP-1-6109 and EP-1-6110.

Inside The Groove

Maynard Ferguson's first 12-inch LP leader sessions on EmArcy, with relaxed long jam session style.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Maynard Ferguson, better known as “Hi-note hitter”, later became famous and popular with his orchestra. In his early years, just after his departure from Stan Kenton band, he had left gems of great West-Coast style jazz ensemble, some by small combo, some by large sections. This is one of them.

This early EmArcy 12-inch LP captures a lengthy jam session headed by Maynard. Each side holds only one tune, Our Love Is Here To Stay and Air Conditioned respectively. Both tunes are not too hot but in relaxed mood, and every player on this session could have enough solo space to represent each of their ability and fascination.

Not well sorted but still an enjoyable album.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

9 out of 10
