Sonny Stitt Plays - Roost

One of Sonny Stitt's amazing albums for Roost — a record with a beautifully mature conception of bop soloing, and a totally confident tone throughout ! There's an understated brilliance here that's nearly impossible to describe in words — a sense of placement, timing, and phrasing that's really impeccable — and handled with Stitt at a level that shows tremendous growth from his early years on Prestige ! The group's a quintet, with Freddie Green on guitar and Hank Jones on piano — and titles include "Afterwards", "Biscuit Mix", "Blues For Bobby", and "The Nearness Of You". Great cover, too – with Stitt backlit against a smokey backdrop, blowing away easily.
