Ted Curson – Underrated Trumpeter
This 2006 Chris Kelsey article on Ted Curson is wonderful, thorough and timely, given Ted’s recent demise from a sudden heart attack. Ted was an amazing trumpeter who was deep in the trenches with Mingus, Dolphy and Booker Ervin among others in ‘60s. I got to work with Ted on several albums for Atlantic and Freedom and I counted him as a good friend as well an extraordinarily sweet person. Underrated right to the end.
