    I got the Maynard Ferguson Tribute DVD set. The first DVD has the tribute concert and the second has historic footage of Maynard from the 50's to recent.

    My wife got this for me and we watched it on Christmas Day. I did not know Maynard personally, though I had the pleasure of meeting him a few times and having dinner with some of the band. His music was a major influence on me as a young player and the DVD is a wonderful reminder of his personality and why he was able to excite so many.

    Great gift, get on for yourself.

    I like the way Maynard dances, like when he was playing Gonna Fly Now, he was bouncing around and "opening and closing" his mouth at the start of the song.
