A rare all-instrumental outing from Bobby Troup – best known for his work as a singer and songwriter at the time!

Stanley Turrentine —
Betcha ... CD Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1979. New Copy ...
Stanley Turrentine's blowing here amidst some soaring arrangements from Gene Page – set in a smoothly soulful territory that draws on all of Page's great work on the LA scene of the 70s, but which still keeps the voice of Stanley very upfront in the mix.

Stanley Turrentine meets Bob James – on a record that's one of the 70s classics on CTI!

Sweet, smooth, and soulful – a heck of a great album from Stanley Turrentine, and one that's recorded in a mode that steps off nicely from his best work at CTI!

(Out of print. Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)
A fantastic early record from tenor giant Stanley Turrentine – a set that's completely hard-hitting, and which has a very different vibe than the sweeter sets he'd cut later in the 70s!
