Sonny Stitt & the Top Brass

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
This LP features altoist Sonny Stitt accompanied by a nonet playing arrangements by either Tadd Dameron or Jimmy Mundy. The charts give this Stitt album more variety than usual, and the superior material which includes "On a Misty Night," "Poinciana" and Stitt's "Hey Pam" challenges the saxophonist to play at his best; trumpeter Blue Mitchell also has a couple of spots. This recommended session was reissued for the first time on CD by the Collectables label in 2004. ~ Scott Yanow & Al Campbell
