AllMusic Review by

Other than an obscure release for the tiny Old Town label, this radio broadcast (released on an LP but not yet on CD) was trumpeter Ted Curson's recording debut as a leader. Teamed up with local players (altoist Al Doctor, pianist Maury Kaye, bassist Charles Biddles and drummer Charles Duncan) for the advanced hard bop date, Curson sounds in fine form on five of his originals; best-known is "Quicksand."
