    Thanks for the info. I think that is the result most of us wanted. Maybe someday the collection will be on-line in some fashion. I don't know if Kenton's is.

    In 2003, Maynard and his band played a couple of amazing concerts here in New Zealand. It wasn't the first time I'd seen him, but I still went to both nights. Wow!!!
    I was playing 2nd on a cruise-ship when I heard the news of his passing. Lets just say that a few tears were shed and a few more bottles than usual were emptied that night in the crew-bar.
    Play on boss, play on >-iii-

    I was in complete shock when I heard that Maynard passed two years ago. Here was a man that I almost idolized. And just like that, he was gone. His music inspires me even more now that he has passed. I still get goosebumps whenever I hear him play.

    I still miss you Boss. Hope your tearing it up in heaven with Gabriel.

    R.I.P. Walter Maynard Ferguson (1928-2006)
