A Jazz Master Goes Out In Style
Alan B. Chase | 05/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If anyone needed a reminder of the integrity of Stitt's playing, these sessions provide more than an adequate example. Stitt knew his niche and explored it to it's fullest capacity. He's completely on top of his game on these sessions and gives no hint of the illness he was dealing with at the time. Remarkable music from a remarkable musician. - Alan Chase, Dover NH."
The last from a legend
D. Skinner | San Francisco | 04/09/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are a serious jazz head...this CD should be part of your colledtion. It was recorded about a month before Sonny Stitt's death in 1982 and he was playing at the top of his game. Stitt was a competotor who loved to jam...and he had done battle with the best...Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Flip Phillips, Ben Webster and the like from his years with "Jazz At The Philharmonic". Simply put, "this cat could play". He is backed on this album by either Junior Mance or Walter Davis on piano, George DuVivier on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums."
Very solid final effort
M. Bauer | Colorado | 10/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These final recordings of Sonny Stitt are beautifully played and recorded. Accompanied by bass, drums, and piano on the first part with the addition of trumpet on some of volume two. A wonderful CD. If you enjoy this disc, I would also strongly recommend Stan Getz "The Lost Sessions" which were also recorded toward the end of his long career and contains some fantastic music."
