Charlie Parker has already established many admirers and his impact could be detected in various styles, but couple of have been seeing that avid a disciple seeing that Sonny Stitt. There is nearly note-for-note imitation in a number of early Stitt solos, as well as the closeness continued to be until Stitt started de-emphasizing the alto and only the tenor, which he artfully mixed the affects of Parker and Lester Youthful. Stitt gradually created his own audio and design, though he was hardly ever definately not Parker on any alto single. An excellent blues and ballad participant whose approach inspired John Coltrane, Stitt could rip via an up-tempo bebop stanza, after that change and play a shivering, fascinating ballad. He was an alto saxophonist in Tiny Bradshaw’s music group through the early ’40s, after that joined up with Billy Eckstine’s seminal big music group in 1945, playing alongside various other emerging bebop superstars like Gene Ammons and Dexter Gordon. Stitt afterwards performed in Dizzy Gillespie’s big music group and sextet. He started on tenor and baritone in 1949, and sometimes is at a two-tenor device with Ammons. He documented with Bud Powell and J.J. Johnson for Prestige in 1949, after that did many albums on Prestige, Argo, and Verve within the ’50s and ’60s. Stitt led many combos within the ’50s, and re-joined Gillespie for a brief period in the past due ’50s. Following a short stint with Mls Davis in 1960, he reunited with Ammons and for some time is at a three-tenor lineup with Wayne Moody. Through the ’60s, Stitt also documented for Atlantic, slicing the transcendent Stitt Takes on Parrot, which finally tackled the Parker query in epic style. He continued going rings, though he became a member of the Giants of Jazz in the first ’70s. This group included Gillespie, Artwork Blakey, Kai Winding, Thelonious Monk, and Al McKibbon. Stitt do more sessions within the ’70s for Cobblestone, Muse, among others, included in this another definitive day, Melody Up. He continuing playing and documenting in the first ’80s, documenting for Muse, Sonet, and Who’s Who in Jazz. He experienced a coronary attack and passed away in 1982.
