Limited Edition 10 CD set of only 5,000 copies worldwide.After immersing yourself in nine hours and 141 tracks of the Ferguson orchestra of the late 1950s and early sixties, Double high Cs will be ringing in your brain for months.
Ferguson gave the orchestra a signature sound and much of its drive, but this was an arrangers’ band.
The high-note trumpeter had charts from established writers like Marty Paich, Bill Holman, Ernie Wilkins and Benny Golson. He also encouraged arrangements from band members, and launched the arranging careers of Slide Hampton, Don Menza, Mike Abene and Don Sebesky. Willie Maiden had been a journeyman arranger for Ferguson since 1952. The uniqueness and command of the idiom in Jaki Byard’s few arrangements for the band emphasize the mystery of why his writing skills didn’t put him in wide demand. It was a remarkable stable of arrangers, many of them writing for a group of musicians with whom they played every night.
The resourcefulness of the arrangers made Ferguson’s ensemble sound bigger than its 13 pieces. Some of the charts experimented with keys and voicings in ways quite daring for the period, or any other. The 141 tracks of this 10-CD set include many standards in addition to the original compositions generated by the arrangers. For the most part, the arrangers fashioned standards for the dance jobs Ferguson frequently played, but they produced some of the most interesting writing in the album, much of it by Hampton, Sebesky and Maiden. Hampton’s version of “Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child” and Sebesky’s “I’m Beginning To See The Light” are two examples of innovation applied to familiar material.
As for the straight-ahead jazz charts, the “Fox” series, “Three Little Foxes,” “Three More Foxes” and “Fox Hunt” contains exciting workouts for the trumpets. “Oleo” and “The Mark Of Jazz” have some of Hampton’s best early writing. The ingenuity of Byard’s section-against-section scoring and stretched blues harmonies in “X Stream” (aka “Ode To Bird’s Mother”) underscores lost opportunities when Ferguson failed to make greater use of the pianist’s talent for orchestration.
To emphasize the importance of the arranging staff is not to downplay the importance of the band’s soloists. Maiden’s tenor saxophone was central to the excitement, as were Menza’s and Joe Farrell’s during their time with Ferguson. Also important were the young Slide Hampton’s trombone work, the alto solos of Jimmy Ford, Lanny Morgan and Carmen Leggio, the idiosyncratic range of Byard’s piano and the drive of Joe Zawinul’s. Drummers Frankie Dunlop, Rufus Jones and Jake Hanna swung the band while meeting the book’s complex challenges.
The enthusiasm Ferguson transmitted to his young musicians made it one of the most exhilarating bands of the period. The force and range of his horn dominated the trumpet section, especially when he doubled the lead an octave or two higher. Still, these recordings have important ensemble and occasional solo contributions by Bill Chase, Clyde Reasinger, Chet Ferretti, Don Ellis and Jerry Tyree.
The freshness and joy of playing that marked the Ferguson band come across with impact in this collection. As usual in Mosaic sets, the accompanying documentation is part of the pleasure. The helpful essay and play-by-play description by Bret Primack includes the reconstruction of a night at Birdland that will stimulate amusement and recognition in anyone who ever endured Pee Wee Marquette and sat in an audience walloped by the power of the Maynard Ferguson Orchestra.

Please Note :- The Reason for MP3 on this Collection

EAC point blankly Refuses to rip Disc 9 securely - Hence only MP3..I have tried all EAC settings in secure mode but it will not rip that disc.
I have tried 3 different PC's now and it's exactly the same so it must be a disc problem even though the disc looks perfect..It will rip it in burst mode but that is not allowed here.

For the time being - I can only offer MP3
