Happy Birthday Maynard Ferguson
Legendary trumpeter Maynard Ferguson turns 78 today! Maynard enjoys continued musical success as he still tours and records with his band.
Maynard and Melody in 2004
I have been to many Maynard Ferguson concerts over the years and have attended them with many friends and family members including Johnny Hall, Melody Hall, Elizabeth Sames, Vince DiMartino, Chuck Buechel, Rich Hudson, Kim Harrod, Jennifer Harrod, Mike Paris, Danny King, Robert Moser, Brian Sturm, and many more. I have fond memories of every concert.
My library of recordings includes every album Maynard has released...and that is a lot! Each time I see him he signs another one or two for me and I treasure them all.
Happy Birthday Maynard! He has brought a lot of joy my way over the years. I look forward to the next time friends and I hear him in concert. I'll need to get him to sign the new "MF Horn VI: Live at Ronnie's" compact disc. It's a new live album recorded in London during his summer tour of 2005.
