From the back cover: Once in a while, a fresh new wind blows across the jazz landscape with an excitement that is as fantastic as it is rare. The response to Sonny Stitt's first varitone sax album has been nothing short of phenomenal. Down Beat magazine devoted a special issue to "The Electrified Sonny Stitt", the album hit the best-selling chart, and jazz fans all across the country wrote in to say "I Keep Comin' Back" to that sound!

From Billboard - February 4, 1967: He's got the fans; they'll snap this up. Jazz versions of "Sunrise, Sunset" and "I Will Wait For You" should carry the sales impetus. Stitt is backed by a full band here.

  1. Wow. Looks like he actually has a cigarette in his hand WHILE he is playing (or at least while being photographed).


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
