Review :
This is one of Big Joe Turner’s better Pablo releases. In 1975 Turner’s voice was still strong and he had a compatible four-piece group that featured veteran guitarist Pee Wee Crayton. With guest Sonny Stitt contributing typically boppish solos on tenor and alto, Turner sings mostly familiar material (including “Stormy Monday,” “Piney Brown” and “Shake, Rattle and Roll”) plus his recent “Martin Luther King Southside.” Recommended.
