Sonny's Conception

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This budget-priced four-disc Proper box includes four previously released single Sonny Clark volumes -- themselves reissues -- packaged in a slipcase. Proper's single-volume titles were Sonny's Mood, Sonny's Bop, Cool Sonny, and Sonny's Blues.
