Maynard Ferguson Meets Miles Davis, Clark Terry and Clifford Brown

Being a trumpet player myself and a big fan of the Late Maynard Ferguson (having seen him play several times during my youth), I am always on the lookout for good video surveys of jazz trumpet players...this one is around 12 minutes long and was presented by the JazzVideoGuy on YouTube...this is Bret Primack's Portrait of Maynard Ferguson, including some rare performance video, and a 1998 interview, where Maynard talks about his admiration for Clark Terry and Clifford Brown, and remembers playing opposite Miles Davis at Birdland.The second trumpeter in the Swingin' clip is Jerry Tyree. Here is the video...enjoy:
