Sonny Stitt could rip through an up-tempo bebop stanza, then turn around and play a shivering, captivating ballad. He was a virtuoso on the horn and relished competition on the bandstand. Stitt had the qualities essential to a tenor battler; he was implacable, indefatigable, and inventive. Equipped with magnificent technique and iron chops, and gifted with an innate ability to swing, he could turn on the music seemingly at will. Stitt was highly admired by both fans and musicians.

In his “meeting” with Sadik Hakim, Stitt splits his time evenly between alto and tenor. With bassist Buster Williams and drummer J.R. Mitchell completing the quartet, Stitt is in his usual fine form on five veteran standards, a pair of blues-based originals and Stevie Wonder’s “You Are the Sunshine of My Life.” Highly recommended for bop fans.

“Sadik Hakim (whose original name was Argonne Thornton) played with a few notable names from the bop era (including Charlie Parker) but has long been a somewhat obscure pianist. His “meeting” with Sonny Stitt (who splits his time here evenly between alto and tenor) was about as high profile as he ever got. With bassist Buster Williams and drummer J.R. Mitchell completing the quartet, Stitt is in his usual fine form on five veteran standards, a pair of blues-based originals and Stevie Wonder’s “You Are the Sunshine of My Life.” The music is not essential but has its heated moments; recommended for bop fans.” (Scott Yanow, AMG)
