Sonny Stitt - Stitt Goes Latin LP


Honey Pie Records

Honeypie present a reissue of Sonny Stitt's Still Goes Latin, originally released in 1963. Musically born in the great tradition of Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt was one of the alto sax giants in Jazz history. Recorded in 1963 and originally released on the Roost label, Stitt Goes Latin catches him at the head of an all-star line-up, a highly distinctive combo in full Latin mood, featuring Thad Jones on trumpet, a young Chick Corea on piano, Larry Gales on bass and a fabulous drums and percussion section with the great Willie Bobo (drums), Carlos "Patato" Valdes (congas, bongos), and Osvaldo "Chihuahua" Martinez (cowbell, maracas). Needless to add that on this fine disc the music flies high through a series of catchy elegant tunes and highly sophisticated and yet infectious Afro-Latin grooves.
