Body & Soul

Trumpeter Maynard Ferguson cut back on his big band around the time he recorded Body & Soul, utilizing an 11-piece group with six horns and an expanded rhythm section. Best known among his sidemen is tenor-saxophonist Rick Margitza. Ferguson uses electronics on some of the selections and swings a bit on "Body & Soul." In addition to Margitza, other soloists include guitarist Michael Higgins, altoist Tim Ries, and keyboardist Todd Carlon. The music is pleasing but not all that memorable, although Ferguson's mastery of his upper register remains quite impressive. [Body & Soul was re-released on CD in 2016.]
