  1. An excellent album that has Stitt playing with moody string arrangements by Ralph Burns. This sort of album became one of the Verve trademarks after the success of the Charlie Parker & Strings sessions – but this Stitt LP gives the sound a whole new twist, thanks largely to Burns' LP, Vinyl record album.
  2. Sonny plays all alto sax on Blows The Blues as stated by Leonard Feather in the original liner notes and I can confirm it. The Fresh Sound back paper wrongly credits him with both alto and tenor. He plays the opening of a couple of tunes in what must be the lowest key possible in the lower register but the alto sax is unmistakable in the /5(14).
  3. Scott Yanow, in his review for AllMusic, stated "Sonny Stitt (heard on both alto and tenor) is in excellent form on this LP -- yet another quartet date. He led over sessions through the years. With pianist Barry Harris, bassist George Duvivier, and drummer Jimmy Cobb inspiring him, Stitt is creative within the boundaries of bebop".
  4. The group's a quartet, with Sonny and Ronnie alongside Art Harper on bass and Lex Humphries on drums – and the session's got the great tone and inventive solo work of Stitt 's best work on Roost, but also a more pronounced role from the rhythm section, who really help drive the record! Titles include "Rearin Back", "Cut Plug", "Queen.
  5. This CD is comprised of 2 LPs: Argo LP (with undocumented piano, bass, drums) and Burnin' (with Barry Harris on piano, William Austin on bass, and Frank Gant, drums). Both from Both dates put Sonny in great form on both alto and tenor. He plays a bunch of blues & rhythm changes on the Argo date -- mostly originals with a few standards/5(86).

  7. A nice little album – featuring some of the sides that Gene Ammons cut "off contract" for Chess/ Argo during the early 60s, and ones that feature him paired with Sonny Stitt, his longtime partner in legendary tenor battles from the lyowebsogendgenwavilhobetevihand.coinfo two horns aren't really locked in combat here, but they do complement each other nicely on the album's mellow groovers and ballad tracks.
