Kerouac, in On the Road already said it:Kamuca (he misspelled it, as he hadn't seen the name written)was a great, exciting young tenor.The fine rhythm section featuring the magnificent Carl Perkins adds the necessary to make this an unforgettable record. Greatnees does not need more than these 30 minutes to score.

They Say All Music Guide

Considering his talent, it is very surprising that tenor saxophonist Richie Kamuca led so few record dates throughout his career — just three during 1956-58 and three for Concord in 1977. This quartet set (a MOD LP reissued by V.S.O.P. on CD) features the excellent cool-toned tenor in a quartet with pianist Carl Perkins, bassist Leroy Vinnegar and drummer Stan Levey. Only the brief playing time (just over 30 minutes) keeps this set from getting a higher rating, for Kamuca is in prime form. Highlights include “Just Friends,” “What’s New” and “Cherokee.” – Scott Yanow
