This Double DVD Tribute Package includes the Maynard Ferguson Tribute Concert held September 20, 2006 at the University of Missouri Touhill Performing Arts Center in St. Louis and over 60 minutes of Historical Bonus Footage. Also included is the original concert program that was distributed to guests at the concert.
The featured concert from St. Louis brought together more than 30 alumni artists from Maynard’s sixty plus years of entertaining audiences around the world. In a manner of words, the tribute was the ultimate symphony dedicated to a man so many called “The Boss”. The DVD of the concert has a running time of over 120 minutes and also includes many great photos of Maynard throughout the years.
The second DVD includes more than an hour of bonus footage excerpts, many of which have never before been seen, from performances all over the world. Recorded between 1950-2006, these excerpts demonstrate Maynard’s trumpet artistry and trademark exuberance as a world renowned bandleader.
A portion of the net proceeds from the DVD sales will go to the Maynard Ferguson Music Scholarship Fund at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
DVD is region-free.
