Booker Ervin, who always had a very unique sound on the tenor, is heard in prime form on this quartet set. In virtually all cases, the jazz and blues musicians who recorded for Candid in 1960-61 (during it's original brief existence) were inspired and played more creatively than they did for other labels. That fact is true for Ervin, even if he never made an indifferent record. Booker is joined by George Tucker: bass, Horace Parlan: piano, Al Harewood: drums. Tracks are: Mojo, Uranus, Poinciana, Speak Low, Booker's Blues, Boo. 180 gram vinyl.
