Sonny Stitt Sonny Stitt Sits With The Oscar Peterson Trio On 180g Import LP

Among Sonny Stitt’s innumerable recordings, this production, made in a Parisian studio in May 1959, is undoubtedly one of his very best. To be sure, this is greatly due to the contribution of the tremendously talented rhythm group. It is certainly a privilege to play sessions alongside such musicians as Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen. Shortly before recording these funky, back-to-the-roots numbers Sonny Stitt had set down a somewhat over-arranged LP with Jimmy Giuffre. Maybe that is why his joy in music-making comes over so clearly in these eight titles. The repertoire too is interesting because the A side is dedicated to his great musical hero Charlie Parker and contains two of his hits, namely “Au Privave” and “Scrapple From The Apple,” while the B side reflects the relaxed, cool world of Count Basie, Lester Young and Ben Webster. It’s only logical therefore, that Stitt changes from the alto sax to the tenor for two numbers from the early days of the Count Basie Orchestra, a time when the two musicians were outstanding soloists. Stitt shows that by 1959 he had found his own, sophisticated style and the unmistakable sound on both saxophones is just as present on this Verve LP as on his other recordings.
