“Maynard and Waynard” is a medium-tempo blues by Gordon Goodwin that the late Maynard Ferguson played on several occasions with lead trumpeter Wayne Bergeron.
For this 2017 performance with backing by a top-notch big band, Arturo Sandoval is in Ferguson’s place.
The trumpet tradeoffs are both cooperative (Sandoval and Bergeron are both appreciative of each other’s talents) and competitive, with the overall results being memorable.
