In the 1970s, CTI, its music, its style and its discriminating quality transformed contemporary jazz. The roster worked almost like a repertory company, in which great musicians took turns in the spotlight and accompanying each other. The albums they and their colleagues created set new standards in their look as well as their sound.  Creed Taylor's plan was ingeniously simple, yet famously maverick: record top-tier musicians, keeping their artistic integrity intact while also making their art palatable to the people.

Stanely Turrentine, a veteran of the soul-jazz scene since the '50s, was accompanied by a who's who of groove players on his 1970 release Sugar, including George Benson (guitar), Lonnie Liston Smith (electric piano), Freddie Hubbard (trumpet), Ron Carter (bass), Butch Cornell (organ) and Billy Kaye (drums), among others. The album sits among the most well-received of "Mr. T's" releases and it finds him adding upbeat funk and rock elements into his signature soul/jazz mixture.
