This 1961 live date from the legendary (and now-defunct) New York City jazz club is one of saxophonist Stanley Turrentine\’s finest. "Stanley\’s Tune" is a stately blues number that fits perfectly into the hard-bop style, and here Turrentine\’s solo is raucous at times, almost percussive in its delivery. "Later at Minton\’s" continues in the blues tradition, with a leisurely pace and solos that are decidedly relaxed and funky. On this track, the smoky timbre of Turrentine\’s horn is particularly reminiscent of the great Coleman Hawkins.

"Love for Sale" (at almost 15 minutes, the longest track on UP AT MINTON\’S) begins with a tricky 12/8 Latin feel, then morphs (rather slyly) into an up-tempo bebop groove. The two-disc set\’s final track, "Summertime," is played as a bluesy ballad, with Turrentine\’s solo beginning with a series of long tones, then building to a sudden, but well-placed, flurry of notes. The backing band is also quite creative throughout, and, not surprisingly, guitarist Grant Green shines on each track.
