Stitt, Sonny - Blows The Blues

Verve Acoustic Sound Series
Vinyl LP
Genre: Jazz
Release Date:
Sonny Stitt | Verve  |  Barcode: 602465124576


Though some critics foolishly tried to label Sonny Stitt as a Charlie Parker clone, he certainly kept them quiet on this 1959 date. Stitt’s originals, like the slow and powerful “Morning After Blues,” come off sounding fresh as executed by this quartet of Lou Levy, Mel Lewis and Leroy Vinnegar. Verve’s Acoustic Sounds Series features transfers from analog tapes and remastered 180-gram vinyl in deluxe gatefold packaging.
