Scoochie

I know this tune from a CD entitled Sounds of the Inner City and attributed to Booker Little and Booker Ervin, but the album seems to have been rereleased under different names and with different leaders.  As near as I can discover, the source material was recorded live at a Teddy Charles sextet gig in 1960.  Everyone involved gives strong performances, but Booker Ervin has so much power, his big bluesy sound is the standout for me.
