Editorial Reviews

Finally, this 1966 gem is available on CD. Though one of majestic-toned, blues-and-bop tenor saxophone maestro Stanley Turrentine's lesser-known albums, Rough 'n' Tumble is nonetheless a foot-stomping delight. On six very engaging numbers, Stanley is surrounded by a dynamic seven-piece all-star band that features trumpeter Blue Mitchell, baritone saxophonist Pepper Adams, guitarist Grant Green, drummer Mickey Roker, and McCoy Tyner (!!!) on piano. The very solid arrangements are by top-drawer writer Duke Pearson. Each track has something special. "And Satisfy" is a riveting, shuffle blues. Turrentine's reading of the theme and his singing then shouting, blues-drenched solo sport his typical vocal inflections. Mitchell and Green's more boplike (though still indigo-shaded) efforts provide delicious contrast. Turrentine's solo on Sam Cooke's "Shake" is another joyous holler. Ray Charles's ever-so-slow ditty, "What Could I Do Without You," has the tenorman at his emotive best, pulling the listener in with crying-like notes while Tyner gets Ray's piano style just right. Stanley also sings out on "Walk On By," and Roker's crisp cymbal and drum work help "Feeling Good" motor right along with a spark. Stanley employs the wears-well melody in his percolating improvisation, and Tyner also scores with a similar approach. The closing "Baptismal," the one strictly straight-ahead piece here, is home to crackling solos from the leader, Tyner-making the style he developed with Coltrane work superbly in a more traditional context--and the ever-galvanizing, gritty and rhythmically sure-footed Adams. A winner all around. --Zan Stewart

Format: Audio CD
This album is a prime example of soul-jazz, even though it doesn't feature the Hammond B-3 organ that is so characteristic of the genre. Most of the tunes are based on the blues scales and gospel rhythms that are the essence of soul-jazz, which largely distinguish it from the earlier jazz genres of dixieland, swing, and bebop.
The presence of McCoy Tyner, Pepper Adams, James Spaulding, Blue Mitchell, Grant Green, Bob Cranshaw, and Mickey Roker, along with arrangements by Duke Pearson, should give this enough jazz credentials to satisfy most listeners. It's not the hard bop or post-bop that Tyner is mostly associated with, but this was early in his career, before his style was fully developed.
Stanley was capable of playing more harmonically advanced material, but this is representative of his strength, which is more about tone and timbre than navigating complex chord changes. Legendary audio engineer Rudy Van Gelder was also on board to ensure that the proceedings were captured as accurately as possible with the technology of the era. At about 38 minutes, the playing time is brief by the modern standard of CD, but it's all good.

Stanley Turrentine was in the prime of his soul-jazz period on this recording. He always sounded like a one man horn section to me. Pepper Adams (baritone sax), Grant Green (guitar) and Mickey Roker (drums) provide support, I believe for the only time on record. "And Satisfy" shuffles like they just don't shuffle anymore. Mickey Roker plays it sneaky and underhanded at a rapid clip, and doesn't sound like he's breaking a sweat. "Feeling Good" is the best track--if you haven't heard it it is a great introduction to Stanley Turrentine at his absolute best. Blues is in every note. For the jazz "purists", there aren't enough funny notes to make it worth your while. If you love soul/blues music done in a jazz style, you have to check this one out.

There is nobody in the jazz world that can compare to Stanley Turrentine. This cooking cd has fine musicians: Grant Green on guitar (it doesn't get much better) and McCoy Tyner on piano (a tour-de-force experience) to name a few. As for instruments, behold the brass: trumpet, alto sax, tenor sax, and baritone sax.

Add the song-writers: Ray Charles, Leslie Bricusse/Anthony Newley, Sam Cooke, Burt Bacharach/Hal David, and John Hines. Who could be better or sweeter!

While this work is full of gems the one not to miss is the finale "Baptismal". It is over six and one half minutes of magnifique!

While Stanley Turrentine will be missed for not being able to continue his soulful artistry into this century, he has left a great and brilliant body of work behind him. Thank you, Stanley!
