4.50 5

A rare Finnish album from the great trumpeter Ted Curson – and easily one of his greatest albums ever! The Ted heard here is a bit like the Curson of the famous early 70s Paris sessions – soulful, soaring, and still every bit as modern as his initial moments in the 60s – yet somehow a bit more focused too – able to really hit a groove when he wanted to, but all without ever losing his edge! The lineup here features some excellent reeds from Eero Koivistoinen – who plays tenor, alto, and soprano sax in the lead – almost with an edge as sharp as Curson's frequent partner Bill Barron. The group also has some heavy Fender Rhodes from Pentti Hietanen, plus sharp rhythms from Pekka Sarmanto on bass and Reino Laine on drums – on titles that include "Ode To Booker Ervin", "LSD Takes Holiday", "Airi's Tune", "Montreux", "Festival Blue", and "Typical Ted".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
