Sugar is a bluesy soul-jazz classic, represented here, on this remastered edition, in both studio and live versions. Butch Cornell's "Sunshine Alley" is solid, and John Coltrane's "Impressions" is given an impressive soul-jazz treatment. ("Gibraltar" was cut from the original track list, but it can be found on another CTI release, "Salt Song".) There's a lot of great jamming here, featuring Stanley Turrentine, Freddie Hubbard, and George Benson as primary soloists. Rudy Van Gelder ably imparted the trademark CTI studio sheen on this recording without compromising the essential grit of the performances.
