4.0 out of 5 stars Classic albums - Classic stitt 26 Feb 2014
By J. D. Naylor TOP 1000 REVIEWER
As long as you are not somebody that likes all of the minute details of a recording session; times,dates,places,song credits etc then its hard to fault these sets. The most annoying thing is when two complete albums don't fit on one disc and the last track ends up on another disc; otherwise this is great value for money and worth the price for the two Stitt/ammons albums alone.
Stitt didn't receive the credit he richly deserved for his great linear improvisations and his quickfire technique so hopefully these bargain price sets will introduce him to some new listeners.
I'll say it again, these sets really can't be faulted for the music quality.
Buy and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the truly great modern jazz altoists 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase
An outstanding player in the style of Charlie Parker but far more consistent in performance, recording quality and general musicality.
Obviously not an innovator but an exceptional improvisor (on alto and tenor) dealing with ballads and up-tempo numbers with equal aplomb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sonny Side Up 20 April 2014
By Jeffrey Tedford - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Sometimes being prolific works against a musician. Sonny clearly felt at ease inside a recording studio, so much so that the listening audience may mistake his recordings as being unexceptional. Yet careful listening tells us that he was not merely a slavish imitator of Charlie "yardbird" Parker. Sonny Stitt was consistently excellent on his own terms from date to date during the period 1959-1962. Throughout these eight sessions Sonny's presence is dynamic and original, whether he's playing alto or tenor sax. In this collection, I currently find myself favoring Sonny's collaborations with Gene Ammons ("Boss Tenors" & "Boss Tenors In Orbit"), particularly "Autumn Leaves" and "Blues Up and Down" (Stitt's most famous original). He was especially discerning in his selection of keyboardists such as Jimmy Jones, Jack McDuff and Don Patterson. My only regret with this collection is the lack of "bonus tracks".

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Jazz Improvisations by one of the masters 16 Mar 2014
By Charles R. Garzoli Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Sonny Stitt was an outstanding performer on both alto and tenor saxophones.While most jazz musicians devote their career to one horn or the other, Sonny excelled at both. You can hear his mastery on this CD of 8 Classic Albums. If you dig straight-ahead bebop jazz, you'll love this compilation of the great Sonny Stitt's music.
