Booker Telleferro Ervin II (October 31, 1930 – August 31, 1970) was an American tenor saxophone player. His tenor playing was characterised by a strong, tough sound and blues/gospel phrasing. He is best known for his association with bassist Charles Mingus. Ervin was born in Denison, Texas. He first learned to play trombone at a young age from his father, who played the instrument with Buddy Tate.
The third album, "Hot Line", also a quintet, but with tenorist Booker Ervin, is primarily a blowing date balancing originals with some jazzy standards. Exclusively for Prime members. I bought this primarily for the Bill Barron, Booker Ervin session on CD 2 but wasn't overly impressed by it. Booker not using the upper octave enough. It is very similiar to BLOWING IN FROM CHICAGO - Clifford Jordan, John Gilmore from the 1950's.

Tenors Bill Barron and Booker Ervin team up on this frequently exciting quintet outing with pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Larry Ridley and drummer Andrew Cyrille. Barron's five advanced originals alternate with three standards (including "Now's the Time," "Work Song" and a previously unissued "Billie's Bounce" that give the two tenors an opportunity to display their contrasting but complementary inside/outside styles. This fine release has been reissued on CD. Track Listing.
