Recording information: Radio Recorders, Hollywood, CA (06/1957).
Considering his talent, it is very surprising that tenor saxophonist Richie Kamuca led so few record dates throughout his career -- just three during 1956-58 and three for Concord in 1977. This quartet set (a MOD LP reissued by V.S.O.P. on CD) features the excellent cool-toned tenor in a quartet with pianist Carl Perkins, bassist Leroy Vinnegar and drummer Stan Levey. Only the brief playing time (just over 30 minutes) keeps this set from getting a higher rating, for Kamuca is in prime form. Highlights include "Just Friends," "What's New" and "Cherokee." ~ Scott Yanow
