"Booker Ervin, who always had a very unique sound on the tenor, is heard in prime form on his quartet set. In virtually all cases, the jazz and blues musicians who recorded for Candid in 1960-61 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. - Scott Yanow, AMG
