AllMusic Review by

32 Jazz launched a retrospective series called Giving Away the Store. These are gateway recordings to an artist's entire catalog. The first release in the series is from Sonny Stitt. This bebop saxophone giant veers from bright jazz hops to compelling blues instrumental ballads. As with other recordings in the Giving Away the Store collection, this album serves as an excellent introduction for the uninitiated or a representative sampler for the knowledgeable fan.
