Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Review

"Bob Florence is a pianist of unequalled harmonic virtuosity, as well as a composer and arranger of both sensitivity and power. Florence brings a mystical romanticism on the one hand and a driving potency on the other ... He assembles the finest musicians in the world and they respond brilliantly as a unit and individually." -- Jazz Review

"Few have the touch of Bob Florence." -- JazzTimes

"Swinging and original-sounding music and arrangements from a multi-talented musician who has been a composer, arranger, bandleader, keyboardist, accompanist, and jazz educator ... the musicians in this band are obviously here because they love it, and the results do sound like it." -- Audiophile Audition

This album is a beautiful tribute to a "Legendary" man of enormous talent in composition, style and artistry, Bob Florence. A blend of amazing arrangements and newly penned songs by the master himself keeps the listener enthralled. My personal favorite is a light bossa called "Luci"......it's dreamy and the horn solo is gorgeous. With Bob Florence's passing, the last song "Auld Lang Syne" with him at the keyboards is wistful and very poignant.
Good night, Bob, and God Bless. This is you best album yet.

L. Janssen

This presumably last album from the late Bob Florence is yet another of his big band's triumphant performances. Fantastic solos (check out Carl Saunders on cut one!), brilliant arranging, and a level of musicianship that can hardly be equaled make this a joy to hear. In a just world, Bob Florence's visage would be on a postage stamp. He was a national treasure. Legendary.

I have owned almost everything of this band over the years, but this one, which was recorded just months after Bob left us, is truly a fitting tribute to a gentleman whose music knew no boundaries.

Everything Bob did - from his own compositions to reworkings of classic songs - was always innovative and fresh, never sounding dated at any time. The same goes for the killer sidemen he employed. I loved ALL of the tracks, especially the theme from "MASH." And the closing "Auld Lang Syne" - with Bob's flawless piano solo - what a perfect way to remember this genius.

While we will hear no more of the Limited Edition, we will have their music as a fond rememberance of Bob Florence - the man and the music. I know he's somewhere in glory with the big band greats that had gone on before him - many of them much too soon.

The arrangements on Bob Florence's Legendary selected to pay tribute to a great musician also highlight his varied and unique big band jazz sounds, nicely ending with Auld Lang Syne. My favorite is the piano in You Must Believe in Spring.
