Stanley Turrentine grew up in a musical family in Pittsburgh; his father a saxophonist, his mother a pianist.

His older brother Tommy played trumpet and Stanley followed in the foot steps of his father, first motivated to pick up the tenor saxophone by the sound of Illinois Jacquet.

He began his professional career in the 1950s playing in R&B groups including that of Earl Bostic.

In 1959 he joined drummer Max Roach's band, and married jazz organist Shirley Scott the following year.

After his divorce from Scott in 1970, Stanley Turrentine expanded his repertoire to include jazz fusion with an album release on the CTI label featuring "Sugar", one of the biggest hits of his career.
