Black & Blue (France), 1979. New Copy ... $7.99
A late life session from Sonny Stitt – and a great one, too – as the set's got the saxophone giant really opening up in the relaxed, easygoing space of the Black & Blue label studio – which allows Sonny to hit the soulful vibe of his classic recordings on Roost and Verve! The ... read more CD

Sonny StittSaxophones Of Sonny Stitt ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
Magical Stitt work on Roost – an album of marked understatement, from the simple title, standard cover, and lack of session details on the back – all of which might make you think "oh yeah, heard this one before." But one drop of the needle opens the album up immediately ... read more CD

Sonny StittSonny Side Of Stitt ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $9.99
Sublime work from Stitt! The record has a subtle genius that's impossible to describe with words – as Stitt's tone and economy on the album's solos are the pure stuff that you only find after panning through an endless stream of post-bop LPs by players of his generation. The album's ... read more CD

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!

Roost/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
Sonny Stitt goes Latin – and the results are tremendous! The set's still got all the soulful feel of the best Stitt sessions for Roost, but it brings in some nice Latin rhythms too – inflecting things with that blend of soul jazz and congas you might find over at Prestige or Blue Note, ... read more CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $9.99
After years of staying free of comparisons with Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt steps confidently into a set of compositions by the late, great one – sounding really wonderful in his own interpretations of these classics!

Sonny Stitt & OthersMatadores Meet The Bull ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
A strange one for Sonny Stitt – but also a real gem! The album has Sonny, who'd been working for the Roost/Roulette label, coming together with other jazz players in the same boat, plus Latin musicians who were recording for the related Tico label. Moishe Levy never made such a good talent ... read more CD

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil ... CD
Trio/Solid (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $28.99
A really groovy album from pianist Kunihiko Sugano – a set that has the leader working on Fender Rhodes, but often with a touch that has the sharpness of an acoustic piano – which is then underscored by some strong use of acoustic percussion as well! The album's definitely got the ... read more CD

Masayuki Takayanagi & Kaoru AbeKaitaitekikoukan ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $14.99
Searing sounds from the Japanese scene at the start of the 70s – music that's equal parts noise and equal parts free jazz – served up on some freaky, fuzzy guitar from Masayuki Takayanagi – and a mix of alto sax, harmonica and bass clarinet from Karou Abe! Abe's a lot noisier ... read more CD

Tenorist Tom Tallitsch has gotten plenty of love from our ears in recent years – and with a record as great as this, he's bound to get plenty more! Tom comes on strong with a really deep tenor sound – a mode that we might put in a range between Hank Mobley and Eric Alexander – ... read more CD
