Overview

A master of the saxophone – primarily alto and tenor – Sonny Stitt’s tireless dedication to recording, touring, and the jazz genre in general was renowned. With a plethora of classic records under both his own name and alongside other greats, he carved out a legacy as one of the foremost players to have worked in the bebop and hard bop idioms. This four disc collection, containing over five hours of music from eight original, remastered LPs, collates the very best of Sonny Stitt's extensive catalogue of albums released between 1957 and 1963.
