The Curtis Counce Quintet
Harold Land (tenor sax), Rolf Ericson (trumpet), Elmo Hope (piano), Curtis Counce (bass), and Frank Butler (drums).

Recorded in Los Angeles, Californis, in April, 1958

Producer & liner notes: Nick Coleman



"Although he lived for another five years after this session, this seems to be bassist Curtis Counce's last date as a leader. His quintet was in fine form playing originals by band member Elmo Hope and tenor saxophonist Harold Land, also playing standards like "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "Angel Eyes" with convincing chops. Swedish trumpeter Rolf Ericson, who became better known to jazz fans while with Duke Ellington in the '60s, fits in beautifully with the cool-sounding hard bop style of this tight unit. Originally released on the long-defunct DooTone label."
