Shirley Scott / Stanley Turrentine

Another absolute classic. Unfortunately short as hell also.

Clocking in at less than 35 minutes, this lp smolders like its name and front cover imply. Sadly it also leaves you wanting more.

In keeping with that theme (or maybe not , depending on how you enjoy my reviews), I'm gonna just bow out and let this record speak for itself.

Shirley Scott and Stanley Turrentine - Blue Flames
1. The Funky Fox
2. Hip Knees an' Legs

4. Grand Street
