The Spoiler [RVG Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Other than a few short spots, Stanley Turrentine is the only significant soloist on this CD reissue, which features a diverse program including "When the Sun Comes Out," "Maybe September," "You're Gonna Hear from Me," and a bonus track of Max Roach's jazz waltz "Lonesome Lover," which was included in the previous CD edition from 1996 but not on the original vinyl LP.

"La Fiesta" (no relation to the later Chick Corea tune) is the high point of a largely enjoyable set. [In 2007 Blue Note reissued The Spoiler in a remastered Rudy Van Gelder edition.]
