2003 CD collection.

It is difficult to believe after listening to this set, that Sonny Stitt only had six weeks left in his life; he already had cancer but did not know it. Switching between tenor and alto, Stitt on the first volume is heard in top form with pianist Junior Mance, bassist George Duvivier, and drummer Jimmy Cobb while the second volume (recorded the following day) adds trumpeter Bill Hardman and has Walter Davis in Mance's place. As was typical of Stitt's career, the music throughout is high-quality bebop with the saxophonist stretching out creatively over common chord changes. This CD (a straight reissue of two single LPs) shows that Sonny Stitt went out on top.
