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. While none of the music is bad here, and cuts like "Birdland," and "Conquistador" certainly showcase Ferguson's titanic abilities, there are too many trademark Maynard cuts missing ("Chameleon," "Gospel John," "Flying High Now ") to recommend this as an adequate overview of his '70s output

Attempts have been made to define jazz from the perspective of other musical traditions, in the opinion of Robert Christgau, most of us would say that inventing meaning while letting loose is the essence and promise of jazz. As Duke Ellington, one of jazzs most famous figures, said, although jazz is considered highly difficult to define, at least in part because it contains so many varied subgenres, improvisation is consistently regarded as being one of its key elements.
