Album Review

Journeyman jazz trumpeter Wayne Bergeron delivers a lush and fiery big-band performance on his 2007 album Plays Well with Others. Featuring Bergeron's own big band, the album also includes a guest appearance by iconic high-note trumpeter Maynard Ferguson. Much of the music here is crisply urbane, swinging mainstream jazz in the "little big band" tradition and should appeal to fans of acutely orchestrated ensemble jazz.

Customer Reviews


Okay..well..anyone who has heard of Wayne knows he is great. Just like the reviewer above me mentions. Let's dive into this...He can play from slow to fast, from high to low..all with the same beautiful sound. That's what makes his playing so amazing. It's not just 'screaming' trumpet. It's...musical "screaming" trumpet. Incidentally, many might not know this, but Wayne's own wife plays in the trumpet section on this CD. These are high quality, high standard songs. Not to mention that this guy is the most down-to-earth trumpet player ever-I've met him and chatted with him for a few hours, and he's the greatest! If you're looking for some high-energy, high-fun jazz, this is the way to go!

Viva El Waynard!

So glad to hear that Wayne's new album is doing well (Grammy nominated!) and he is getting the attention he deserves for his playing - I have always loved how musical his playing is with the Big Phat Band and now he is featured with his own powerful band (Rick Baptist & Warren Luening, yeah!) - great improv and lead playing - you don't often see that in the same person! I heard an interview with Wayne several months ago (when he was making this album) on Yamaha's Podcast and Maynard was in the studio with him - check that out. I think this was Maynard's last recording session - the man that lead the way and that Wayne has improved upon. Thanks and keep them coming Wayne! Bernie

He's done it again

I am a huge fan of Wayne, and i have to say that this album is absolutely superb in everyway. One track even features the trumpet legend Maynard Ferguson, rest in peace. Andy Martin the lead trombone player, also completes the songs many a time. All around this music is just great, and i strongly suggest it. Gordon Goodwin wrote "maynard and waynard", and he has three albums out at the moment with andy martin and wayne bergeron.
