This album of sophisticated 1980s jazz-funk from one of the master practitioners of the genre features Stanley Turrentine accompanied by a small group on a selection of mostly uptempo pieces, including the disco-influenced “Paradise” and the ballad “I Knew It Couldn’t Happen,” the latter with vocals by the well-known singer and actress Irene Cara.

After the release of Coldwater Flat five months earlier, Three Sounds pianist Gene Harris and bassist Andy Simpkins found themselves faced with yet another personnel change: Donald Bailey, who'd been with group for only two albums, left the group (after replacing founding drummer Bill Dowdy) and was replaced by Carl Burnett. The jazz-pop direction that Harris and Simpkins pursued on the fine Coldwater Flat set – where the trio fronted the Oliver Nelson band and a string section – was followed up here with composer and saxophonist Monk Higgins as arranger, conductor, and co-producer (with Dee Ervin).

With Mosaic Records expanding its horizons over the past few years, fans of many different styles have had the opportunity to expand their collections and recent Mosaic honorees have included Mildred Bailey, Eddie Condon, Bobby Hackett, Chico Hamilton, and Anita O’Day. But to those long time followers, it continues to be the hard bop verities of the Blue Note label that have often been synonymous with Mosaic’s mail order dynasty. ~ AllAboutJazz

Original Release Date: Sep 22, 1966 | Remastered Audio CD (February 6, 2007) | Label: Blue Note Records

Other than a few short spots, Stanley Turrentine is the only significant soloist on this CD reissue which features a diverse program including "When the Sun Comes Out," "Maybe September," "You're Gonna Hear from Me" and a previously unreleased rendition of Max Roach's jazz waltz "Lonesome Lover." Although he is accompanied by an all-star group that includes trumpeter Blue Mitchell, altoist James Spaulding, baritonist Pepper Adams and pianist McCoy Tyner, Turrentine's sidemen could almost have been anonymous studio players for the tenor is the dominant voice throughout.

Although he's a monster tenor soloist on funky, exuberant, bluesy soul-jazz, Stanley Turrentine is even more awesome on ballads. His rich, steamy sound, full tone, and ability to pace and develop moods is ideal for show tunes and sentimental love songs. This nine-track set begins with Turrentine nicely caressing the melody and turning in a standout treatment on "Willow Weep For Me," continuing through tearjerkers ("Since I Fell For You") and blues anthems ("God Bless The Child"), and closing with Thad Jones' beautiful "A Child Is Born." Turrentine is matched with numerous premier players, and pianist McCoy Tyner, guitarist Jimmy Smith, and even Turrentine's brother Tommy (trumpet) gently support and complement the main soloist. One of the best Blue Note special discs, featuring moving, frequently hypnotic playing from a true tenor great.

Since you will be plunking down mucho moola for this title, let me tell you a little about it. Recorded in June 1960, this session features the phenomenal rhythm trio of Horace Parlan on piano, George Tucker on bass and Al Harewood on drums. This trio had previously worked together on the Dexter Gordon classic "Doin' Alright" and Lou Donaldson's "Midnight Sun" (one I've been waiting for years to get reissued), and they would make magic again on Turrentine's "Comin' Your Way" and "Up At Minton's," and several fine Parlan titles. The material here is mostly original with three by Turrentine (the hard-bop gems "Look Out," "Little Sheri" and "Minor Chant"), one by Parlan ("Return Engagement"), and Clifford Brown's "Tiny Capers." "Journey Into Melody," is a ballad by a British composer named Robert Farnon. All brought together it makes for another classic straight-ahead swinging from the folks at Blue Note.

If ever there were a record that both fit perfectly and stood outside the CTI Records' stable sound, it is Sugar by Stanley Turrentine. Recorded in 1970, only three tracks appear on the original album (on the reissue there's a bonus live version of the title track, which nearly outshines the original and is 50 percent longer). Turrentine, a veteran of the soul-jazz scene since the '50s, was accompanied by a who's who of groove players, including guitarist George Benson, Lonnie Liston Smith on electric piano, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, bassist Ron Carter, organist Butch Cornell, and drummer Billy Kaye, among others.

I'm certainly no jazz authority, but I love most of the stuff the Blue Note label put out in the 1960s and early 70s, including the albums by Stanley Turrentine. For my tastes, his sound was a nice compromise between the harder, avant-garde players and the more mainstream types. Turrentine had a nice tone and also had the knack for mixing original material with tasteful (although sometimes predictable) cover tunes. Unlike the other reviewer, I'm not much bothered by his cover of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" on this album. Certainly, it's as acceptable as his version of another much-covered tune, "The Look of Love," though perhaps not as adventerous in execution. All of the tunes on this CD were recorded in 1967 and produced by Duke Pearson, boasting a stellar lineup of sidemen, including Julian Priester, Joe Farrell, McCoy Tyner, Blue Mitchell, James Spaulding, and even Duke Pearson handling organ duty on two tracks. Fans of Turrentine's 60s Blue Note recordings should enjoy this CD as well.

Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest 24bit 192kHz remastering. One of Stanley Turrentine's few organ-based sessions for Blue Note – recorded in the company of his lovely wife Shirley Scott, who was really a cooker on the Hammond! The album's got a much stronger sound than most of Shirley's own from the time – played by a solid group that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Otis Finch on drums. Tracks include "Trouble No 2", "Goin Home", "Ladyfingers" and "The Hustler".

Label: Audiophile Records | Rel: 1971

Fourteen years after her last record, singer Lee Wiley came back for one final studio recording. Although she does a good job on "Indiana" and "I'm Coming, Virginia" and the backup band (which includes trumpeter Rusty Dedrick, clarinetist Johnny Mince, trombonist Buddy Morrow, and pianist Dick Hyman) is excellent, in general this is a disappointing LP. Wiley's voice was no longer in its prime and, although her distinctive phrasing was still intact, her earlier sessions are far superior while her final Carnegie Hall recording is much more emotional and historic. This album is only recommended to Lee Wiley completists. [The CD version released by Audiophile tacks on a 1965 demo session recorded with Joe Bushkin.]
