Stanley Turrentine Sugar 180g LP
180g Vinyl Remastered From the Original Two-track Analog Tapes!
Stanley Turrentine, the jazz tenor saxophone player, was also known to some
as "Mr. T" or "The Sugar Man". The jazz musician was greatly influenced at a
young age by family and others, having been invited to sit in with Illinois
Jacquet at the tender age of 12. Turrentine's only formal musical training came
from a stint in the military in the mid 1950s. The rest he learned from life
experiences and influences.
Sugar sits among the best-received of Turrentine's albums in which he added
upbeat funk and rock elements to his mixture of soul jazz, a combination that
led to significant sales.
