Album Review

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."

Customer Reviews

The Richie Kamuca Quartet

A superb player by comparison to anyone in that post-Parker generation. Fluent top-of-the-line ideas and technique when he plays. Very creative outlook. Should never have been overlooked the way he was. Where were the "critics" when you needed them to recognize something very good?
