Note From Dada!
Ώτα μου καλησπέρα και καλή εβδομάδα.
Στα ίδια μουσικά μήκη και πλάτη με το προηγούμενο album ("Respect") του Jimmy Smith θα κινηθούμε, με έναν groovy/funk/soul/jazz δίσκο του σαξοφωνίστα Stanley Turrentine.
Μαζί του και σ' αυτον το album συμμετέχει παίζοντας Hammond η σύζυγός του, η εξαιρετική Shirley Scott η οποία υπογράφει και τη σύνθεση ενός κομματιού ("Boogaloo").
Καταλυτική επίσης είναι και η συμμετοχή του "συνήθη υπόπτου" (σε τέτοια ακούσματα) Idris Muhammad στα τύμπανα, την παρουσία του οποίου παίρνει κανείς χαμπάρι απ' τα πρώτα κιόλας μέτρα του "Buster Brown" που ανοίγει το δίσκο και που ακολουθεί σε video μορφή.
Αξιόλογη η διαδκευή πάνω στο κλάσικ του Dylan το "Blowing In The Wind" ενώ στις ωραίες στιγμές του δίσκου συγκαταλαγέται και το "Living Through It All".

Καλή ακρόαση.

About Stanley Turrentine
Stanley William Turrentine, also known as "Mr. T" or "The Sugar Man", (April 5, 1934 – September 12, 2000) was an American jazz tenor saxophonist.
Turrentine was born in Pittsburgh's Hill District into a musical family. His father, Thomas Turrentine, Sr., was a saxophonist with Al Cooper's Savoy Sultans, his mother played stride piano, and his older brother Tommy Turrentine also became a professional trumpet player.

He began his prolific career with blues and rhythm and blues bands, and was at first greatly influenced by Illinois Jacquet. In the 1950s, he went on to play with the groups of Lowell Fulson, Earl Bostic, and at the turn of the decade, Max Roach.

He married the organist Shirley Scott in 1960 and the two frequently played and recorded together. In the 1960s, he started working with organist Jimmy Smith, and made many soul jazz recordings both with Smith and as a leader.

In the 1970s, after his professional split and divorce from Scott, Turrentine turned to jazz fusion and signed for Creed Taylor's CTI label. His first album for CTI, "Sugar" proved one of his biggest successes and a seminal recording for the label. He worked with Freddie Hubbard, Milt Jackson, Bob James, Richard Tee, Idris Muhammad, Ron Carter, and Eric Gale, to name a few. He returned to soul jazz in the 1980s and into the 1990s.

Turrentine lived in Ft. Washington, Maryland from the early 90s until his death. He died of a stroke in New York City on September 12, 2000 and is buried in Pittsburgh's Allegheny Cemetery.

About Shirley Scott
Shirley Scott (March 14, 1934 – March 10, 2002) was an American hard bop and soul-jazz organist. She was most known for working with her husband, Stanley Turrentine, and with Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis. She was known as 'Queen of the Organ'.
Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Scott was an admirer of Jimmy Smith, and played piano and trumpet before moving to the Hammond organ, her main instrument, though on occasion she still played piano. In the 1950s she became known for her work (1956–1959) with the saxophone player Eddie Davis, particularly on the song "In the Kitchen". She was married to Stanley Turrentine and played with him from 1960 to 1969. Later, she led her own group, mostly a trio. Saxophonist Harold Vick often played with her.

In the 1980s, she became a jazz educator and became a highly known and respected member of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's jazz community.

Scott died of heart failure in 2002, which was hastened by the diet drug fen-phen. Scott won an $8 million settlement in February 2000 against American Home Products, the manufacturers of the drug cocktail.
