This is the original Maiden Voyage, which has nothing to do with a Herbie Hancock composition bearing the same name. Maiden's Maiden Voyage takes you on a new melodic trip over the chord progression of "Tea For Two" with solo sections for Alto Sax, Trumpet, and Baritone Sax. Known for his skill as an arranger, Maiden cleverly sets up each soloist and also has created backgrounds for the soloists.
The solo changes are based on the chord progression of "Tea For Two," always a fun set of changes for soloing.
Composer, arranger, tenor and baritone saxophonist Willie Maiden started writing for Maynard Ferguson's band in 1952, then joined the band as its tenor sax soloist in 1956. He also spent several years as arranger and baritone saxophonist with the Stan Kenton orchestra.
