Stanley Turrentine had one of the most soulful and immediately recognizable sounds in Jazz. With a mere two notes, the great tenor could be instantly identified: every sound he made was overflowing with his own brand of soul. Look Out! (1960) features Turrentine at the beginning, on his first Blue Note album, when he was just 26. Having worked with R&B bands and with Max Roach, "Mr. T" was more than ready.
On Look Out!, he plays bop, ballads and funk with intensity and passion. But it really doesn't matter what song Turrentine plays; he turns everything into the blues, bending notes with his huge sound and playing straight from the heart. Look Out! was the record that launched Stanley Turrentine and made him a big star.
