Format: Audio CD
A very fine session indeed. Stanley was always a boss man on the tenor and here he is joined by a like spirit in Les McCann. The session came about when McCann, normally based on the West Coast, was visiting New York, Stanley's normal base, and somebody had the very good idea of getting the two together. This disc, and another on Pacific Jazz under McCann's name, was the outcome.
Stanley was up to his usual form, which means the disc contains some of the best tenor sax around at the time. He was always a superb blues player with a full tone, but with a hard edge on top, and one of the best ballad players around, with a tone that softened, but had plenty of strength. On a rocking slow or medium blues he had limitless invention. Lots of players learn to play the blues but Stanley never needed to, it was just there.
McCann had a bit of a patchy career. He could, when he wanted, be a fine rhythmic, swinging pianist, but often,what he produced was ersatz soul and funk, obviously aiming for the Ramsey Lewis market. Well, worry not, because this time the good angel McCann appears, and fine swinging bluesy piano is the result.
The rhythm section let nobody down. Herbie Lewis on bass is a powerful swinging bassist, ideally suited to this music, and the little known Otis Finch is a swinging uncomplicated drummer. As a matter of interest, Lewis had just left McCann's trio and Finch was about to join Shirley Scott's group. Shirley Scott was Mrs. Turrentine, so it all sounded cosy if not downright incestuous.
The tunes are all blues apart from one beautiful ballad 'Dorene' but there is plenty of variety, and above all miles and miles of boss tenor. You wouldn't want to miss that, would you? For me, it's not quite up to the sessions with Horace Parlan, but slightly better than the meeting with the Three Sounds, because it's just that bit tougher.

Soulful Groove 9 Dec 2005
By Jazz_Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
That's where it's at is all Stanley needs to say with this album. Stanley Turrentine and Les McCann turn in a head bobbin' performance as they groove from song to song. Mr. Turrentine isn't a Coltrane or Rollins who would give you an endless stream of notes, instead he gives you some of the best Soul jazz I've heard from him yet. His excellent tone and sound make the

CD sound like it was recorded just the other day. This happened to also be my first taste of Les McCann on the piano, who solos and accompanies Stanley with great flare and vigor (as you can hear his moanin' in the background as he plays). Now a 5 star rating is probably a little high on an overall Jazz scale, but in regards to Stanley Turrentine, it is one of my favorite albums of his that I own. I recommend this album very highly to anyone who enjoys that Soulful Groove, Stanley Turrentine can bring with his Tenor Saxophone.

Encounter: This is where it's at. 30 Dec 2005
By George H. Soule - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The liner notes to this CD recount the fortuitous 1962 meeting of Stanley Turrentine and the L.A. and Pacific Jazz based Les McCann Ltd. that produced this marvelous masterpiece of gospel inspired jazz. The disc features a handful of original compositions by McCann, Stanley Turrentine, and Stanley's brother, the trumpet player Tommy Turrentine. Part of Rudy Van Gelder's ongoing Blue Note reissues, the disc presents Stanley's always competent tenor saxophone in context with Les McCann's trio. The quartet is tight and competent, exemplifying the best of the gospel-soul inspired jazz of the 1960's. It's funky and soulful-and it swings. McCann's piano style has always seemed to me to be the authentic version of what Ramsey Lewis was trying to achieve commercially, and tunes like "Stacey's Smile" and "We'll See Yaw'll After While, Ya Heah," bear out that opinion. Les McCann is simultaneously modern and down home without pretension--be it shout or truth--and to my ear McCann complements Stanley Turrentine's lyrical and soulful tenor better than any other setting. This disc is certainly among Turrentine's best, and it's good to know that it's available again. This is where it's at, and you can't go wrong with this disc.

SOULFUL 1 Aug 2008
By Lester L. Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
They told the truth about this one. I've heard Stanley Turrentine before, but never like this. The brother is smokin'. Of course, Les Mccann is there to give that extra boost. My advice, slip this one on, turn down the lights, get that 'whatever' you're going to sip, and enjoy.

My favorite Turrentine album 5 Sep 2009
By G B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I haven't heard all of Turrentine's Blue Note albums, but this one is probably my favorite. It's from the beginning of his run on the label, and despite falling comfortably in the soul jazz category will probably appeal to fans of more straight-ahead hard bop as well.

The magic ingredient here is Les McCann. His playing here combines extreme soulfulness and funk with melodic inventiveness. He also contributes most of the compositions - we blast out of the gate with the gospelly, dancing "Smile, Stacey", but also get the beautiful ballad "Doreen Don't Cry, I". Stanley's playing is superb throughout, and the rhythm section is tight!

Highly recommended!

TWO LEGENDS JOINED TOGETHER FOR A LAID-BACK-RELAXED RECORDING SESSION THAT WORKED WELL WITH LISTENERS... 17 July 2009
By Mr. Nightshift - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
...And the solid sales didn't hurt either. Top Cuts: "Smile, Stacey", "Soft Pedal Blues", "Pia", and "Light Blue". A must have to add to your collection. These two Jazz Legends didn't record together again until several years later, which was kinda strange because Blue Note Records usually paired workable artist together again right away for a follow-up album...Not the case with these two? The Stereo on this album is awesome...We have Rudy Van Gelder to thank for that!
The only Bonus Track they (Blue Note) could unearth is an Alternate Take of "Light Blue".
