Since I can't afford the Maynard Ferguson Mosaic......

9 posts in this topic

Since I can't afford the Maynard Ferguson Mosaic set, I'm looking for available Maynard Ferguson Roulette recordings on CD.

Roulette CDs I've found:

A Message From Birdland

Double Exposure

Two's Company

Maynard '61

Straightaway Jazz Themes

Si! Si! MF

Roulette CDs that exist but I don't have:

A Message From Newport

Roulette LPs ( Are any of these available on CD???)

Swingin My Way Through College

Play Jazz for Dancing

Newport Suite

Let's Face the Music and Dance

Maynard '62

Maynard '63

Message From Maynard

Maynard '64

The World of Maynard Ferguson

This CD has the Plays Jazz For Dancing and Let's Face The Music And Dance albums combined on it:

Not Roulette, but immediately after, are the Cameo sessions, which are collected here http://www.amazon.com/Sounds-Maynard-Ferguson-Come-Complete-Recordings/dp/B006GVNILK

Might be a little pricey these days, the large Maynard fanbase allows for that, but if you don't already have it and like the later Roulette sessions a lot, you'll most likely enjoy these every bit as much.

Cheaper via ebay as well.

Really surprised that more of those albums weren't released as single CDs. Maynard is like buddy Rich, there's a fan base that extends beyond "typical jazz buffs". The prices of the Mosaic set show that much. Missed opportunity perhaps.

Yes. That "stretching beyond" may not be the case in Japan, as even they haven't brought out many.

I really appreciate the tip regarding the Dancing Sessions CD, that's one I didn't know about- now the challenge of finding it....

The Cameo recordings are excellent, any Maynard Ferguson fan will enjoy them.

The CD that JSngry referenced is readily available. I think my copy came from importcds.com.

Also, Frys has it now for $15.98. http://www.frys.com/product/6941267

Nor have the Andorrans or the PD Britis companies, like Proper and Avid and Real Gone Jazz. A puzzler.
