Sonny Stitt - Move on Over (The Eddie Buster Sides)

Move on Over pairs Sonny Stitt with the little-known Chicago organist Eddie Buster, resulting in a gritty, kinetic session fueled by the lively give and take of its principles. Guitarist Joe Diorio and altoist Nicky Hill further enhance the set's organic, one-take feel. All four participants seem to operate on pure instinct, translating the energy of the live setting into the sterile confines of the recording studio, and the music is all the better for it.

Sonny Stitt (heard on this LP on alto and tenor) recorded a countless number of albums in his career, so many that he often had trouble recalling them years later. It is doubtful if he remembered this particular record, a loose quartet outing with tenor-saxophonist John Board, organist Edward Buster and drummer Joe Shelton. Their renditions of a few standards and some riffing blues are spirited if not all that essential.
