It IS about time!
I thoroughly enjoyed this CD. It features a nice variety of big band jazz styles and arrangements. Steve Steinberg, Dean Brown, Eric Marienthal, and Wayne Bergeron are all standout soloists on the album. It also features some lovely vocals from Janet Hammer, my personal favorite feature of hers being Some Other Time.

This album contains a handful of tunes arranged and/or composed by the underappreciated, Chris Braymen. The Salt Shaker is a very nice original that flows effortlessly through a variety of Latin rhythmic styles.

The CD culminates in what is the highlight for me, Glory, Glory, co-composed by Chris Braymen and the late, great Maynard Ferguson. This tune was previously unrecorded! Wayne Bergeron is featured and does a masterful job of bringing back the spirit of Maynard. Listening to this transported me back to my youth and the fantastic feeling of listening to a new Maynard Ferguson recording. This tune alone makes this CD a must buy for all Maynard fans.
