Criss is one of my favorites. Out of Nowhere is a classic.

Format: Audio CD
This was one of two albums Criss recorded late in his career for Muse, the other being _Crisscraft_. As with so much of Sonny Criss's work, his very distinctive, soulful & passionate take on bebop makes this enjoyable & listenable throughout without its being any kind of masterpiece. The band is OK, but definitely second-string--the idiosyncratic bop pianist Dolo Coker (whose shining moment on disc was surely Art Pepper's _Intensity_), bassist Larry Gales, drummer Jimmie Smith. Yet they do all right by Criss, & he sounds as good as he did when he was on Prestige, blasting through bop chestnuts like "All the Things You Are" & "Out of Nowhere" (as well as "The First One", a "Rhythm"-changes tune composed by Criss), a couple blues (one major-key, one minor), a ballad ("My Ideal") & one of Criss's characteristic dips into unlikely repertoire: "Brother Can You Spare a Dime?"
All told, a nice send-off for the great & ill-fated saxophonist (whose comeback in the 1970s was shortly to be halted by a diagnosis of cancer; Criss, in despair, took his own life). No perceptible dark shadows hanging around the music, which is probably just as well. Recording quality is good, though not exactly subtle.
