The Bob Florence Limited Edition: Whatever Bubbles Up
Summit Records is steadily building a reputation as a solid big band label, with notable recent releases from the Jazz Orchestra of the Delta , the Mike Vax Big Band , and the Les DeMerle Band . Whatever Bubbles Up showcases Grammy-Award Winning composer/arranger Bob Florence leading his big band, Limited Edition. Limited Edition is high on high brass. The repertoire is Florence's own with the exception of a beautifully rendered "Chelsea Bridge."

"Dukism" is what one would expect, a lengthy guitar introduction over the standard rhythm section of drums and bass. The band approaches slowly, insinuating itself into the intimacy of the trio before exploding. The remainder consists of twelve minutes of riff-based big band, intricately composed and performed. "Never Endings" and "Running With Scissors" also sport this same jaunty style, with brash trumpet and trombone solos and Florence's understated piano. A superb big band outing.

For more information, see Summit Records .

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
