Despite its bragging title, this LP is decent but not essential. Sonny Stitt, who during the same period was recording classics for Cobblestone/Muse, is in above-average form for this set although the material (four fairly basic originals and two ballads) is not quite up to par. Stitt (switching between alto and tenor) is ably accompanied by pianist Hampton Hawes, bassist Reggie Johnson, and drummer Lenny McBrowne and the jam session-style music is reasonably enjoyable although recommended primarily for his greatest fans.
