Precious! What an exquisite guitar solo in Hank Crawford's song.

Great to hear this much Mr. T and Freddie to start a Sunday morning after a storm. Thanks Tony. Cheers, DrJ

I thought for a micro-second Mr T. referred to myself rather that Mr Turrentine. I guess you actually got double T. I always found that CTI is a little controversial amongst jazz aficionados. Many of them think it’s not really “proper” jazz. I try not to be snobby about music myself. Anyway thanks for listening.

Heh, heh. I should have thought of that & played with T some more. CTI records were definitely designed to sell, but many have survived quite nicely. But I do wish, particularly for Wes Montgomery, that most of the tunes had 'radio edits' (those 'commercially' released), but extended tracks with more solos from him. Same goes for the 'commercial' Benson tracks. BTW, the drama of your 1st Hubbard track was a perfect starter. Cheers, DrJ

Perfection in optimo forma. Love every single second Tony.
