Stanley Turrentine was just beginning to turn heads in jazz circles in the early ’60s when he made an appearance at Minton’s with guitarist Grant Green, pianist Horace Parlan, bassist George Tucker, and drummer Al Harewood. The group mixes hard bop with funk and soul jazz; Turrentine’s tone, sound, and pacing are good, although he wasn’t yet the master at ballads he would be later in his career. Standards and a couple of blues make up the repertoire, giving listeners a definitive look at the soulful Mr. T. near the beginning of his productive musical life.
