The second in tenor saxophonist Booker Ervin's Book
series, this CD reissue may seem a bit more conservative than the others due to the inclusion of six standards (including "Come Sunday," "All the Things You Are" and "Just Friends"), but Ervin
and his quartet (with pianist Tommy Flanagan
, bassist Richard Davis
and drummer Alan Dawson
) come up with fresh interpretations of the warhorses. Booker Ervin
never sounded like anyone else.
