This LP features altoist Sonny Stitt accompanied by a nonet playing arrangements by either Tadd Dameron or Jimmy Mundy. The charts give this Stitt album more variety than usual, and the superior material (which includes "On a Misty Night," "Poinciana," and Stitt's "Hey Pam") challenges the saxophonist to play at his best; trumpeter Blue Mitchell also has a couple of spots. This recommended session was reissued for the first time on CD by Atlantic Japan in 1998, then on the Collectables label in 2004. ~ Scott Yanow & Al Campbell, Rovi
