Stanley Turrentine, the jazz tenor saxophone player, was also known to some as "Mr. T" or "The Sugar Man". The jazz musician was greatly influenced at a young age by family and others, having been invited to sit in with Illinois Jacquet at the tender age of 12. Turrentine's only formal musical training came from a stint in the military in the mid 1950s. The rest he learned from life experiences and influences.

Sugar sits among the best-received of Turrentine's albums in which he added upbeat funk and rock elements to his mixture of soul jazz, a combination that led to significant sales.
