Maynard Ferguson Cincinnati Concert
Maynard is sensational. I have heard him in concert many times over the years, and he always plays with fire and passion. His exciting sound stirs the emotions of his audience. The cat is 77 years old and still blazing those notes in the stratosphere. He and his Big Bop Nouveau Band played a concert last night at Princeton High School in Cincinnati, Ohio.
I took my niece Elizabeth to hear him for her first time. She is a trumpet player in her middle school band and was absolutely amazed when she heard Maynard and his trumpet section. His lead trumpeter Patrick Hession is as good a lead player as you will ever hear. As always, Maynard had time after the concert to talk with friends and fans.
