Maynard Ferguson RIP
I recently discovered pandora.com and was broadsided by a beloved memory.
I had my “Buddy Rich” channel playing, I was cruising the blogs when it hit…Maynard Ferguson’s rendition of “Eli’s Coming.” Suddenly, at 44, I was 15; the tune still cranked–I was out of my chair, prancing and head bobbing like a white boy who can’t dance (sorta like me (: )
I felt joy–my joy–the joy that a jazz lover knows…
“The Way We Were”
Maynard Ferguson, your music is a blessing to me.
God Bless you and Rest In Peace.
