ABKCO Records & Real Gone Music Release “The New Sounds of Maynard Ferguson/Come Blow Your Horn”


Maynard Ferguson needs little introduction as he was one of the most celebrated trumpeters in jazz. This release, sourced from a series of jazz albums that Cameo released in 1963 and 1964, is comprised of Ferguson’s two 1963 albums for the label. The first, New Sounds of Maynard Ferguson now also includes “The Song Is You,” a never-before-released gem from the session that was discovered while researching tapes for this album. The track makes its debut on this release. Come Blow Your Horn was Ferguson’s second album for Cameo; both albums represent his complete recordings for the label, documenting a long-overlooked chapter in Ferguson’s career, that came between better known stints with Roulette and Mainstream. These recordings make their CD debut and street on January 31.
