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 its 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. In addition to "Poinciana" and "Speak Low," Ervin's quartet (which was a regular if short-lived group) performs four of the leader's originals; best
known is "Booker's Blues."
