This album features a most unusual session. Veteran blues singer Joe Turner and his usual rhythm section of the mid-’70s (which includes guitarist Pee Wee Crayton) are joined by four notable trumpeters: Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Eldridge, Harry “Sweets” Edison, and Clark Terry. On three blues (including the 15-minute “I Know You Love Me Baby”) and “Tain’t Nobody’s Bizness If I Do,” the group stretches out with each of the trumpeters getting ample solo space. It is not a classic outing (a little more planning and better material might have helped), but it is colorful and unique enough to be easily recommended to straight-ahead jazz and blues fans.
