"Let It Be" was a smash hit for "The Beatles" but here you may listen Stanley Turrentine's Jazz version.
William Turrentine (also known as "Mr. T" or "The Sugar Man") was an
American jazz tenor saxophonist. He was born in Pittsburgh's Hill
District on April 5, 1934 into a musical family. His father, Thomas
Turrentine, Sr., was a saxophonist with Al Cooper's Savoy Sultans, his
mother played stride piano, and his older brother Tommy Turrentine also
became a professional trumpet player. Stanley began his prolific career
with rhythm and blues bands, and was at first greatly influenced by
Illinois Jacquet. In the 1950s he went on to play with the groups of
Lowell Fulson, Earl Bostic, and at the turn of the decade, Max Roach.
married the organist Shirley Scott in 1960 and played frequently with
her. In the 1960s he started working with organist Jimmy Smith, and made
many soul jazz recordings both with Smith and as a leader. In the
1970s, after his professional split and divorce from Scott, he turned to
jazz fusion. He worked with Milt Jackson, Bob James, Richard Tee, Idris
Muhammad, Ron Carter, and Eric Gale, to name a few. He returned to soul
jazz in the 1980s and into the 1990s. He lived in Ft. Washington,
Maryland from the early 90s until his death.
Turrentine died of a stroke in New York City on September 12, 2000.
