AllMusic Review by

Upon the death of his close friend, fellow tenor Gene Ammons, Sonny Stitt recorded this fine tribute album. In addition to an emotional version of the title cut and an original blues, Stitt (mostly on tenor) performs four songs that Ammons used to play including "Red Top" and "Exactly like You." With fine assistance from pianist Barry Harris, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Leroy Williams, this is a high-quality bop set.
