Here's a brand new one from Gene Czerwinski's great MAMA label - a combining of creative juices without equal. A lofty statement? No, an understatement. If there's a jazz orchestra anywhere in the jazz world which equals the Limited Edition, we've yet to see / hear it! They are, quite simply, UNlimited.........

Bob's new CD is comprised of eight dissimilar creative charts - music which totals nearly seventy-minutes of pure JOY! Here is the epitome of the Big Band genre. What he and his "family" do in their get-togethers was and is peerless. There are five new originals by Bob, and three re-workings of Ellington, Mandel, and Monk in this edition. Precision is at its zenith here - the NORM for L.E.

If you dig constant surprises, don't miss Earth. If the sound of a purring Jaguar raises your hair, connect with this one. If a roaring tornado of Jazz Masters elevates your mind, you must add Earth to your Best-of-the-Best file. Florence and Friends have created some of the best music of the year - and it's only May...


Title: Earth | Year Released: 1997 | Record Label: MAMA Records
