Alan Dawson and The Great Band That Got Away

ervin_bookerSKF NOTE: What a band! I read recently these four compatriots never performed together live. What a shame. Four great players. A showcase for Alan Dawson. This was the first time I heard the side of Alan Dawson that influenced his student, Tony Williams.

Booker Ervin‘s version of A Lunar Tune (Ervin) from his album The Freedom Book. Recorded at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, on 3 December 1963. Produced by Don Schlitten for Prestige Records. Personnel: Booker Ervin (tenor saxophone), Jaki Byard (piano), Richard Davis (bass), and Alan Dawson (drums).
