AllMusic Review by

Sonny Stitt is in excellent form on At the Hi-Hat. Recorded live at a Boston club, Stitt uses a local rhythm section (pianist Dean Earl, bassist Bernie Griggs, and drummer Marquis Foster) as he jams on a variety of standards. Stitt mostly switches between alto and tenor, but on "Tri-Horn Blues," he takes solos not only on both of those saxes, but also on his rarely heard baritone. Overall, this LP gives you a good all-around sampling of early Sonny Stitt.
