Overview

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. The material, with the exception of the first seven selections on disc one (which comes from the Xanadu release The Sonny Clarke Memorial Album, a live tape of a 1954 trio date), all comes from Clark's years at Blue Note, from albums such as Dial S for Sonny, My Conception, Cool Struttin', and Sonny's Crib. In other words, the only reason you might be interested in purchasing this set is if you have nothing by Clark in your collection -- this is a cheap way to introduce yourself to one of the hottest jazz pianists of the 1950s.
