With its mix of pop covers and jazz material, The Look of Love could be considered a typical Turrentine album from the late '60s. With his flexible phrasing and muscular tone, Turrentine dives into the lush arrangements, especially on the sweeping rendition of Burt Bacharach 's "Look of Love.
More upbeat, straight-ahead material like "A Beautiful Friendship" and the blues swinger "Blues for Stan" keep the date well balanced and set the table for some masterful Turrentine solos. Again, special mention The Look Of Love - Stanley Turrentine - The Look Of Love be made of Thad Jones who, along with Oliver Nelson Nancy Wilson 's Tennessee Yodel Blues - Elton Britt - Yodel Songs to My Love in particular and Duke Pearsonsupplanted the usual syrupy arrangements found on "cross-over" dates with intelligent, complimentary charts.
Turrentine certainly appreciated it, as evidenced by his strong work here. Purists who usually cringe at late-'60s jazz dates like this yes, there is a Beatles cover Dale Turner - Gibraltar - Gibraltar might be pleasantly surprised.
