Stanley Turrentine – Look Out!


Although he is best known for his bluesy soul-jazz outings, tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine’s first Blue Note session as a leader was a much more traditional bop affair, and the resulting album, Look Out!, featuring a rhythm section of Horace Parlan on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Al Harewood on drums, shows as much artful restraint as it does groove. Not that this is a bad thing, since it allows Turrentine’s big, clear tone to shine through in all its muscular sweetness, giving Look Out! a wonderful and flowing coherence. Among the highlights here are the pretty ballad “Journey Into Melody” and the gently funky “Little Sheri.”

Personnel: Stanley Turrentine (tenor saxophone); Stanley Turrentine; George Tucker (bass instrument); Horace Parlan (piano); Al Harewood (drums).
