Sonny Stitt – Stittsville (SLP-2244) (1960)

SAM_0363A contemporary (and usually designated acolyte) of Charlie Parker, alto and tenor saxophonist Stitt sounds more R&B here than bop, despite a repertoire leaning heavily towards standards. Working in a small group, the warm results betray more than enough jazz virtuosity to lift Stittsville way above the ranks of the generic soul-jazz honkers.
