The life and music of tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine in NPR's Jazz Profiles, hosted by Nancy Wilson. Stanley William Turrentine was one of the most distinctive tenor saxophonists in jazz. Known for his big, warm, sound, "The Sugar Man" or the original "Mr. T" found inspiration in the blues and turned it into a hugely successful career with a #1 hit and four Grammy nominations -- first in R&B and then in jazz.
