Conquistador is the ninth album by Canadian jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson on Columbia Records. The album is notable for its inclusion of the hit single Gonna Fly Now Theme from Rocky. Bob James produced it Primal Scream and made it with all the New York heavies Steve Gadd, Richard Tee, Eric Gale, et al. It did very well for a crossover album, but the guys on the band were a little upset about the fact that they weren't on it. Born in in album Maynard Ferguson - Conquistador 1977. Maynard Ferguson - Gonna Fly Now. Maynard Ferguson - Mister Mellow. Maynard Ferguson - Theme From Star Trek. Ну как можно не влюбиться в музыку одного из величайших джазовых трубачей. Замечательный альбом,Conquistador-любимая композиция. Но,хоть мне и нравится музыка и Фергюсона,и Weather Reportкстати в ней играл великолепный клавишник Джо Завинул,бывший солист оркестра Фергюсоная предпочитаю джаз с вокалом,всё таки моя любовь к джазу началась с Армстронга и Чарльза.

Maynard Ferguson Format: Audio CD. I love the Conquistador by Maynard, but this particular CD is of inferior quality. They shipped the replacement and it played once and won't play again. Just better. Maynard Ferguson describing Sylvester Stallone punching a speed bag to the rhythm of the song as it was recorded. Conquistador was the most successful album of Ferguson's career, earning him his first and only gold record, and a Grammy nomination Best Pop Instrumental Performance for Gonna Fly Now Theme from Rocky. Boosted by the popularity of the single, Conquistador not only went to number one on the Jazz charts, but it became the first big band album to. appear on the pop charts in decades, sparking a revival of interest in big band music
