Perfect candlelight music

(5 out of 5 stars)

"My favorite Turrentine album since "The Baddest Turrentine", this one has Stanley's smooth, soulful sound, but without the overproduced "strings flooding in" that diminishes many of his other recordings. This mellow album, which sounds like an actual quintet rather than something cooked up in a studio, will please confirmed jazz afficionados as well as pop fans -- another good "intro to jazz" album for people who can't quite get their ears around the more demanding sounds of many jazz artists. Everybody likes it. It makes such a great gift, I'd like to get a volume discount."

"This is Stanley Turrentine at his best. You can hear the influence of Ben Webster in some of his deep, breathy playing. But more than anything, you can hear Turrentine's own sound. Although sometimes unfairly overshadowed by Coltrane and Dexter Gordon, Stanley Turrentine's expansive, rich, warm tones always feel just right. Every song on this disc is perfect for mellow evening or Sunday morning listens. Get it. I guarantee you will play it over and over again."
The smoothest tenor sax along with soothing piano

"This CD is exquisite. Stanley Turrentine and Gene Harris combine in the first track "Willow Weep for Me" with the best way to relax after a hard day. Guaranteed to drop blood pressure 20 within 5 seconds. I have nearly worn out this CD. A must must have for tenor sax lovers, jazz piano lovers and Gene Harris fans."
