Sonny Stitt - Bubba's Sessions (RSD2023)

Regular price $ 28.79

These are Sonny Stitt's last ever live recordings, on November 11, 1981, from Bubba's Jazz Restaurant, whose stage had been the place of so many historical jazz recordings. Stitt performs here alongside fellow tenor Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison, backed by the unrelenting drums and bass propulsion of Duffy Jackson and Donn Mast. This concert recording was first issued on vinyl in 1983, and has not been reissued since. This new press (on heavyweight colour vinyl) comes 40 years later as an homage to the late Sonny Stitt who died soon after the recordings, in 1982.
