(Stanley Turrentine - his classic collaboration with The Three Sounds in 1960)
One of my favorite albums, and certainly one of the greatest in the "late night" vein of Jazz is the classic collaboration between Stanley Turrentine and The Three Sounds. Blue Hour is the result of sessions recorded between July and December 1960. A seamless pairing between Gene Harris on Piano and Turrentine's tenor sax and backed by bassist Andrew Simpkins and Bill Dowdy on drums. Blue Hour has been reissued countless times and has recently come out in a special edition featuring the complete sessions, which is definitely worth checking out.
For now though, here is "Gee Baby, Ain't I Good To You".
Our Week of Mellow continues in fine form.
