Here is a “NEW” recording by Maynard Ferguson! I originally wrote this “ode to romantic hyperbole” back when I was on the band in 1984. After I left the road, Maynard went into the studio and recorded lots of things that became “Big Bop Nouveau” however, this track was never released. In fact, Luther’s great vocals weren’t even added until later. Recently (2016) Jim Exon and I remixed the track and Jim also added Maynard’s solos (which were also recorded later) and it is now reissued by Omnivore Recordings as part of “Big Bop Nouveau”. Therefore: a new Maynard track! Such a deal 🙂
