Stanley Turrentine Sugar 180g LP
Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the September 2009 Issue of Stereophile! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!
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.
