When it comes to playing powerful tenor solos full of the grit of life’s experiences mixed with joyful and optimistic shouts, Stanley Turrentine was Mr. Soul Jazz. Recognizable at any part of his career within two notes, Turrentine was in his own musical category no matter what the setting. A master at caressing melodies and making them his own, Turrentine, with his passionate musical personality, could turn any song into the blues. There is plenty of evidence of his brilliance throughout 1962’s Jubilee Shout, one of his most exciting recordings for Blue Note. Jubilee Shout, which has never sounded better than on this remastered LP, features Turrentine interacting with such notables as his brother trumpeter Tommy Turrentine, Sonny Clark and Kenny Burrell, performing both heartwarming renditions of ballads and soulful romp. Turrentine creates unforgettable statements on “My Ship,” “You Better Go Now” and “Jubilee Shout” that simply need to be heard. Even listeners who already own many Stanley Turrentine recordings have to consider their collection incomplete until they own Jubilee Shout. They will be blown away by the musical magic.
