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 i.

Chameleon (Maynard Ferguson album). Chameleon is a 1974 big band jazz album by Canadian jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson. It features cover versions of many songs that were popular in the years leading up to its production, including: "Jet" by Paul McCartney and Wings, "The Way We Were" – which was popularized by Barbra Streisand, and "Livin' for the City" by Stevie Wonder

Only 10 left in stock (more on the way). Conquistador featured 'Gonna Fly Now (Theme from "Rocky")' which was a US Top 30 hit, and the album spent 26 weeks on the Billboard album chart. Hot was also a Top 20 album. With Bob James producing, Ferguson's 70s albums were extremely commercially successful, no mean feat for a jazz trumpeter. Disc: 1. 1. Chameleon.

BGO's 2015 double-disc set pairs three mid- to late-'70s albums Maynard Ferguson recorded for Columbia: 1974's Chameleon, 1977's Conquistador, and 1979's Hot. Each of these records - which were not released sequentially - finds Ferguson gliding down the satiny middle of the road. Chameleon contains a bit of variety, toggling between adult contemporary ballads and a bit of cruise-ship funk (covers of "Livin' for the City," "Jet") but generally sticking with slick crossover jazz.

Maynard Ferguson: Chameleon, Conquistador. Less exciting by far is Conquistador, which was released, not as the follow-up to Chameleon, but as the successor to Primal Scream, an album that was made with Bob James in the producer's chair. James brought in his own New York session musicians, so Ferguson's band members didn't appear on the album. Though the album was a commercial success it miffed the band members, and very few of the album's charts were incorporated into the band's live appearances
