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.
