Texas tenor Ervin possessed a brawny, cavernous sound like none other, and an original, harmonically sophisticated improvisational approach. Here he's backed by one of the greatest rhythm sections in jazz history--the exceptional Byard, Davis and Dawson. "A Lunar Tune," from perhaps his best recording, is a kaleidoscopic, exhilarating trip that makes the listener bemoan the fact that Ervin died in 1970 at only 39.
