Stanley Turrentine

A legend of the tenor saxophone, Stanley Turrentine was renowned for his distinctively thick, rippling tone, an earthy grounding in the blues, and his ability to work a groove with soul and imagination. Turrentine recorded in a wide variety of settings, but was best-known for his Blue Note soul-jazz jams of the '60s, and also underwent a popular fusion makeover in the early '70s. Born in Pittsburgh on April 5, 1934, Turrentine began his career playing with various blues and R&B bands, with a strong influence from Illinois Jacquet. He played in Lowell Fulson's band with Ray Charles from 1950-1951, and in 1953, he replaced John Coltrane in Earl Bostic's early R&B/jazz band. After a mid-'50s stint in the military, Turrentine joined Max Roach's band and subsequently met organist Shirley Scott, whom he married in 1960 and would record with frequently.

Upon moving to Philadelphia, Turrentine struck up a chemistry with another organist, Jimmy Smith, appearing on Smith's 1960 classics Back at the Chicken Shack and Midnight Special, among others. Also in 1960, Turrentine began recording as a leader for Blue Note, concentrating chiefly on small-group soul-jazz on classics like That's Where It's At, but also working with the Three Sounds (on 1961's Blue Hour) and experimenting with larger ensemble settings in the mid-'60s. As the '70s dawned, Turrentine and Scott divorced and Turrentine became a popular linchpin of Creed Taylor's new, fusion-oriented CTI label; he recorded five albums, highlighted by Sugar, Salt Song, and Don't Mess With Mister T. While those commercially accessible efforts were artistically rewarding as well, critical opinion wasn't as kind to his late-'70s work for Fantasy; still, Turrentine continued to record prolifically, and returned to his trademark soul-jazz in the '80s and '90s. Turrentine passed away on September 12, 2000, following a massive stroke. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

I was introduced to Stanley by listening to a Gene Harris song a few months back. So impressed I had to hear more. Bummed that I never heard either live.

Great jazz

I was privileged to see Mr. T live in the late 70’s on a small southern NH college campus. The opening act had the crowd rocking and then 3 older gentlemen and a young bass player strolled onto the stage. The crowd turned reverent by the third tune of the set. We didn’t want to miss a note. We were in the presence of greatness.

One of my all time greatest influences! His tone and style is so pure and soulful, you can hear his emotions. Soul Jazz at it's greatest.

I really love traditional jazz. It's amazing that not only can a piece be created, but then you can improvise in ways that sound even better than rock or pop music.

Meeting him in Fort Washington, MD before his death was one of the best days of my life. He will be missed and always enjoyed.

My absolute fav album, which isn't featured on here is "Joy Ride." This album was my introdution to Stanley and I immediately fell in love right then and there. I picked it up out of my daddy's collection out of the blue. I love his geniuos sound. It's perfect. I am kinda upset that Joy Ride isn't on here, but it's cool. I'll jusst explore other albums that I haen't yet heard.

I'm a former Pittsburgher & a contemporary of Stanley's. I think he had
a brother that came onto the jazz scene sometime after Stanley. What was his
name & what about his career?
