Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD.
Personnel: Sonny Stitt (alto & tenor saxophones); Bill Hardman (trumpet); Junior Mance, Walter Davis (piano); George Duvivier (bass); Jimmy Cobb (drums).
Recorded at JAC Recording Studio and Nola Recording Studio, New York, New York on June 8 & 9, 1982. Originally released on Muse.
It is difficult to believe after listening to this two-CD set, that Sonny Stitt only had six weeks left in his life; he already had cancer but did not know it. Switching between tenor and alto, Stitt on the first disc is heard in top form with pianist Junior Mance, bassist George Duvivier, and drummer Jimmy Cobb while the second CD (recorded the following day) adds trumpeter Bill Hardman and has Walter Davis in Mance's place. As was typical of Stitt's career, the music throughout is high-quality bebop with the saxophonist stretching out creatively over common chord changes. This double CD (a straight reissue of two single LPs) shows that Sonny Stitt went out on top. ~ Scott Yanow
