Album Review

Two former LPs are completely reissued on this single CD. The first set, Have You Ever Seen the Rain, was recorded in 1975 shortly after tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine left the CTI label, and it is a rather commercial effort despite a couple appearances by trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. Mr. T. plays well, as always, but the arrangements by Gene Page for an expanded rhythm section, strings, and voices are quite forgettable and Turrentine is unable to uplift the music much. The second album, 1980's Use the Stairs, has Turrentine with a big band arranged by Wade Marcus, and is more jazz-oriented, with the highlights including "The Lamp Is Low," "On a Misty Night," and "Jordu." But one should acquire Stanley Turrentine's earlier Blue Note and CTI recordings first, for those let him cut loose much more than most of his Fantasy albums.

Use The Stairs is in my dad

It feels so refreshing to find this album in a remastered edition. No longer do I have to put up with the mildly irritating thing called vinyl hiss. Also, this remastered version is paired with another album that I'd never quite heard of (Have You Ever Seen The Rain?). Anyways, the new tracks are from the same masters used for the 1980 lp I had, but sound very much improved. Thanks
to Fantasy Records for this gem of an album. True, there may be a few duds on it, however my dad and I like the song "The Lamp Is Low". My father is the one who helped me to discover jazz at a particularly early age.
