Episode 456: Sonny Stitt's 'Mr. Bojangles'

Discologist

How do we know if a piece of music is good? How do we know if it is bad? How do we know why we feel the way we do about the songs that soundtrack our lives? Those are the questions that we’ve asked over and over for almost 500 episodes on Discologist. As we enter our 10th season, it’s about time we found some answers.On the season premiere, Kevin and Eduardo are digging into legendary jazz saxophonist Sonny Stitt’s overlooked masterpiece, Mr. Bojangles.  An album that is as transcendent as it is trashy, Mr. Bojangles asks listeners to consider what they REALLY want out of music and then gives it to them in an exquisite slow burn of schmaltz.It’s really better than it sounds. Trust us. We’re here to help.We’re part of the Osiris podcast network.

Tenor and Alto Saxophone Master Sonny Stitt: "Tune Up"

CiTR -- The Jazz Show

Sonny Stitt was one of the true masters of the saxophone and a favorite of just about every other saxophonist and yet he remains underrated. His flow and his ideas and both alto and tenor saxophones is unparalleled. Stitt recorded prolifically and mostly in a quartet setting with piano bass and drums or with organ, guitar and drums. Here he is on one of his finest outings done a few days after his birthday on Feb. 8,1972. Stitt is backed by a "Cadillac" rhythm section of Barry Harris on piano, Sam Jones on bass and Alan Dawson on drums. Our Jazz Feature album is called "Tune Up" and Stitt offers us his interpretations of some good standards and some Jazz originals. As always he is masterful and one can hear on this recording why he was everyone's favorite. Sonny Stitt...Jazz mastery!

Tenor/alto Saxophone Master Sonny Stitt: "Personal Appearance"

CiTR -- The Jazz Show

The great Sonny Stitt was a true master of the alto and tenor saxophone and yet was saddled by some critics as being "an imitator". On alto he bore some superficial similarities to Charlie Parker but that was as he said, "Bird and I listened to the same cats and were influenced by them". On the larger tenor his influences were less clear and he wasn't criticized as much but because of his flowing ideas and his formidable technique but he was often accused of being "glib". Somehow he couldn't win and yet every prominent saxophone player listed Stitt as one of their favorites. Stitt recorded a lot and mostly in quartet settings with piano, bass and drums or with organ, guitar and drums, Here is one of his finest dates done in May 1957 with a short-lived working band with a young Bobby Timmons on piano, Edgar Willis on bass and the dynamic yet tasteful Kenny Dennis on drums. Stitt is inspired by the band and has a great day here. The critics loved "Personal Appearance" and so will you! Sonny Stitt forever!

Sonny Stitt

Jazz Library

Sonny Stitt was one of the finest bebop saxophonists, transferring the style of Charlie Parker to the tenor instrument, as well as developing his own approach to the alto. Fellow saxophonist Alan Barnes joins Alyn Shipton to choose the best examples of Stitt's work, including his recordings with Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell and Sonny Rollins as well as the many sessions he led himself.
