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.
