CD Reviews

Tenor Troubador
Samuel Chell | Kenosha,, WI United States | 06/22/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Stitt was the lone-wolf, two-pistol gunslinger who could do it all--consummately. He traveled from European jazz festivals, performing the entire Charlie Parker book, to inner city lounges, picking up his tenor and hitting all of the soulful notes. This 1963 date finds him in the latter role--with a little known organist, Charles Kynard, who's making his debut. He plays bass strictly with his feet and goes for thicker, fuller registrations than most of the Jimmy Smith proteges of the day. The reissue doesn't include the 2nd take of the title song, but it does offer, for the sake of interesting comparison, three bonus tracks featuring Stitt's favorite, working rhythm section throughout the '60s--Donald Patterson and Billy James. Not essential but good Stitt."
