Having helped to pioneer the hard-bop approach to the tenor saxophone during the Fifties, Sonny Stitt often found himself working with organ combos in the Sixties. He may have followed trends, but the Boston-born musician never sacrificed what Ira Gitler described as "that assertive, uplifting drive." Featured on all selections is Don Patterson, one of the few organists of the era able to keep pace with Stitt's challenging harmonic and rhythmic requirements. Stitt plays both alto and tenor saxophones and, on the whimsical "Mama Don't Allow," even sings a bit of blues.

with Paul Weeden, Don Patterson, Billy James
