This is the third of several VSOP releases of Criteria recordings. Criteria was a small jazz label founded by Mac Emerman that showcased Miami jazz musicians of the late 1950's. All Criteria LPs are extremely rare and highly sought after. This 1957 recording exemplifies the high caliber of jazz that made it onto this label. In addition to Miami's finest, this recording features Johnny Williams and Vinnie Tanno. The explosive Vinnie Tanno takes over this session making this recording very much a trumpet extravaganza. Lon Norman, not to be outdone, provides some very fine trombone and outstanding charts, demonstrating that he is definitely deserving of significant recognition. This recording is without a doubt an extroverted blowing session, not for the feint of heart. A great record, now an equally fine CD.
