The Essence of Maynard Ferguson is the third compilation album by Canadian jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson on Columbia Records.[1] It was released in 1993 as part of Columbia/Legacy's budget line I Like Jazz series (often sporting Sony's "Nice Price" stickers at retail). At the time of its release, this was the only Compact disc available containing many of Maynard's recordings for Columbia.

AllMusic's Matt Collar stated simply – "A single-disc, budget-line compilation, The Essence of Maynard Ferguson brings together a handful of tracks the legendary high-note trumpeter recorded during the 1970s."[2]

  • Times shown are the correct lengths.[a]




  1. ^ Times listed for most of the tracks are incorrect, and the times shown are as reported by (as opposed to printed on) the CD itself. The source of these errors is unknown. Unfortunately, these have been accepted without verification, and reported as fact in other sources. While some of the tracks report the same length as their source albums, some are slightly longer ("Primal Scream", "I Can't Get Started") or slightly shorter ("Conquistador"), these minor alterations are a side-effect of assembling these LP tracks on Compact disc, not a result of altering the recording. The extra time on "The Fox Hunt" is simply to allow the applause to fade.[3]
