Ralph Jungheim, Maynard! (Buster Ann). Jungheim’s book is a collection of 30 transcribed reminiscences about the trumpeter and bandleader. Most of them are by musicians, but Ferguson’s valet, bus driver and instrument maker also contribute. Some of the anecdotes are amusing, some interesting, some appalling. The exclamation point after his name in the title applies to Ferguson’s spectacular playing and his ego. Even associates who had problems with his music and his insecurities had affection for him. The mystery of Ferguson’s supernatural chops is probably not explainable, but the book gives insights into his musicality and the contradictions in his character.
