Stanley Turrentine - A Chip Off The Old Block

Sometimes one of the best things about running this blog is just digging through the lps, trying to find something different, something obscure - and of course OOP. So many lps go in and out of print it is hard to keep track.

And sometimes, at 10 o'clock at night, you stumble across an lp that you haven't played in forever, probably not all that hard to come by, and just fucking flat out makes you grin.

Guinness in moderation was absent this evening, and I came home and played this. I am now compelled to share it with all you.

What can you say about this lp? Everything about radiates a good time. Even the grin on T's face as he cops a ridiculous pose.

Hah! Nice call deGallo. Sorry. The same overzealous concumption Guiness made me forget to attach the links. I will post them as quickly as I can. Give me a couple of hours.
