SONNY STITT - PRIMITIVO SOUL

















Sonny Stitt for Prestige from 1964.
Ronnie Mathews, Piano ; Leonard Gaskin, Bass; Herbie Lovelle, Drums; Osvaldo Martinez,Bongos ; Marcelino Valdez, Conga.

Inexplicably this has never been reissued which is a shame as it's a great jazz lp with an authentic latin feel."Slave Maidens" and "Barefoot Ball" do it for me every time but the rest of the album is cracking.

AMG review:Excellent soul jazz and blues numbers by alto and tenor saxophonist Sonny Stitt, who plays with almost unrelenting energy and drive throughout this session. This was a typical date, but Stitt's earthy playing moved it beyond cliche and convention.

Thanks, bacoso! You certainly know "Stitt goes Latin" which he recorded the same year for Roost featuring Willie Bobo and Chick Corea?

Wow, what a great album! Stitt recorded a lot, and there is certain feeling of sameness that can creep in when he runs through some standards and simple riff tunes with a piano trio as he often did. Therefore it is always interesting when he is put in a more unusual context, as is the case here. The latin orientation on this album works very well, and I immediately want to declare it as one of Stitt's most successful albums. It is indeed inexplicable that this is the only Stitt on Prestige that has not come out on CD!

A great asset here is also pianist Ronnie Mathews. He had recorded an album of his own for Prestige just two weeks earlier. Unfortunately it was also his last until the mid-70s. However, he had recorded a trio session for Savoy in 1961, which remains unissued.

As for Stitt, he had the previous month recorded the album "Stitt Goes Latin" for Roost, so he seems to have been on a latin kick in late 1963.
