Ironically, only last night I was enjoying his marvellous album, "The Spoiler" - great Monday night listening after a stressful day. This splendid album finds him in the company of greats including Blue Mitchell, Pepper Adams, McCoy Tyner and James Spaulding among others. The material covered is equally outstanding with items like "Sunny", and "When The Sun Comes Out" featured.
S.T. certainly had the knack of surrounding himself with equally superb musicians as well as the skill to select and compose outstanding tunes for his albums.
