Sonny Criss: Intermission Riff by AAJ Staff, published on January 1, 1999. It's a powerhouse group, a pleasing mix of the famous and the soon-to-be. The horns are Joe Newman and Lockjaw Davis, both to join Basie, and Bennie Green, between stints with Earl Hines. The rhythm has Tommy Potter and Kenny Clarke; pianist Bobby Tucker is probably the most obscure of the bunch. This is a pickup group? Their shining moment came between sets, appropriately enough, on the tune "Intermission Riff". The horns punch the solid-brass riff, then Lockjaw solos, even more raucous than normal.
