Audio CD | Import, Hybrid SACD
Customers who viewed this item also viewed
This 1961 live date from the legendary (and now-defunct) New York City jazz club is one of saxophonist Stanley Turrentine s finest. APO s remaster for SACD features the first volume of the original two disc set. Tracks include standards and a couple of blues numbers and feature Turrentine at the height of his youthful power. Guitarist Grant Green
and pianist Horace Parlan push the vibe forward, and the excitement of the audience at Minton s Playhouse seems to drive the group to the top of their game.

The entire ensemble is on fire. In fact the ambiance and crowd noise captured - especially at the beginning of some tracks - make you feel as though you are there. Although there are no sound samples on this page you can listen to snippets from each track by going to the product page for Up At Minton's, which is an MP3 album that contains both sets.
Time for each of the four tracks, totaling nearly 45 minutes, is:
1. But Not For Me 11:29
2. Stanly's Time 11:03
3. Broadway 10:38
4. Yesterdays 11:39
In addition to the album mentioned above this (and Volume 2) are also available on discs 3 and 4 on a bargain-priced set titled 6 Classic Albums.
