During his period on Columbia, Maynard Ferguson showed a willingness (and sometimes even an eagerness) to record pop material. His trumpet playing is frequently brilliant throughout this LP with his English orchestra, but not too many jazz purists will be thrilled with his renditions of "Theme from Shaft," "Spinning Wheel," and "Hey Jude." The music is actually better than it seems, but do not look here for any bop. ~ Scott Yanow
