Stanley Turrentine: In the Pocket [Fantasy, 1975]
This is the sound track for a romantic comedy featuring Henry "Hank" Aaron as a bank vice-president whose hobby is private investigation. While "digging" into billiard-licensing payoffs, he falls for a lady eight-ball hustler (Leslie Uggams) who happens to be the daughter of Mr. Big, played by Barry White. Aaron decides to go crooked, but you know he'll never achieve the power or vulgarity of his father-in-law. Neither will Gene Page, who arranged this claptrap for Turrentine, a saxophonist whose fat, self-indulgent tone is apparently demanding the worst these days.
