Look Out! is the second album by jazz saxophonist Stanley Turrentine featuring his earliest recordings as a leader on the Blue Note label performed by Turrentine with Horace Parlan, George Tucker and Al Harewood.[3]


The Allmusic review by Steve Leggett awarded the album 4½ stars and states "Although he is best known for his bluesy soul-jazz outings, tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine's first Blue Note session as a leader was a much more traditional bop affair, and the resulting album... shows as much artful restraint as it does groove. Not that this is a bad thing, since it allows Turrentine's big, clear tone to shine through in all its muscular sweetness, giving Look Out! a wonderful and flowing coherence".[2]
