Album Review

Alto saxophonist Earl Turbinton and keyboardist Willie Tee moved into more adventurous territory than usual on this 1988 date. While each was an experienced blues and R&B stylist, they had also maintained active jazz ties since the '50s, although they'd only shown it in New Orleans clubs.

The saxophone player from New Orleans has played with an amazing array of music giants, from Cannonball Adderley to B.B.
