Biography

A true master of the bebop vocabulary, Sonny Stitt (1924-1982) sounded so close to Charlie Parker on alto at times that he was almost written off early in his career. When he began doubling on tenor and evolving as a player, however, his individuality and brilliance became more obvious, and few could beat him at playing bebop.

Stitt had his first major job in 1943 playing with Tiny ... Read more in Amazon's Sonny Stitt Store

4.0 out of 5 stars A Real Gem 20 April 2005
By Michelle Sanders - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album, recorded in 1979 while on tour, is a real gem. Late Stitt, to be sure, a wonderful rhythm section is allowed space, a rarity in many Stitt recordings. The quartet plays as a group and anyone unaccustomed would have little clue as to the featured artist. At the time, Stitt's dental problems (restored later) may have impaired his tone but certainly not his creativity. Curiously, the selections on this recording also appear on another album "Back To My Own Home Town." in which Stitt performs a vocal. Two of the selections have their titles switched. The cover art is also used on other Stitt albums. Nevertheless, this is a very enjoyable album!.
5.0 out of 5 stars SONNY WAILS 19 May 2012
By Wm Buck Kipper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
WHAT CAN BE SAID ABOUT SONNY STITT THAT HASN'T BEEN SAID ALREADY. THAT CAT CAN BLOW, WHETHER ON TENOR OR ALTO. IT'S STILL A GAS TO SIT BACK AND DIG SONNY WAILING. HE'S ONE OF THE FINEST.
4.0 out of 5 stars The gift that keeps on giving 18 Nov 2004
By Samuel Chell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Yet another Stitt-led session in a discography that clearly must exceed the estimate of 150 albums Sonny is said to have issued under his own name. This is late Stitt, recorded in Paris in 1979. I'm not familiar with the pianist and bass player (both are top-flight musicians), but the presence of Bobby Durham on drums was enough to force purchase. He doesn't disappoint, going beyond sensitive support to insistent generator of excitement and swing.

Sonny may be a tad less polished, smooth, and articulate on this recording (his intonation is often suspect in the upper register of his alto), but he plays with aggressiveness, feeling, and at times an unaccustomed abandon. The rhythm section is not about to roll over and play dead, and Sonny has no choice but to meets its challenge.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best of Stitt, but still shows some imagination! 4 July 2001
By Jacob Byrd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is certainly not one of Stitts best works but he plays it like only he could. So if you are a Stitt fan check this one out!
