Together these four sets trace the tenor saxophonist's earliest recordings he does some alto playing here, toobeginning with a session with Dizzy Gillespiehis and sessions with Bud Powelland his early 78s with fellow saxophonist Gene Ammonsand ending with his sessions with Johnny Richards. The best Stitt was still in the future, and this box is probably more than all but the most dedicated Sonny Stitt fan will ever need, but it's nice to have these early 78s all together in one place.
