Performance:   Sonics:
I have subscribed to the Analogue Productions Verve SACD reissue series. This is the first one I am reviewing. The title is apt! Blues by a jazz saxophone master, in excellent form! The sound is excellent, clean, well balanced, very fine, LA, vintage Verve recording. I'm thinking this is the same studio and engineers used to record the later Billie Holiday sessions with Ben Webster and Harry Edison and others. Interesting to hear Mel Lewis on drums. Levy and Vinnegar teamed up frequently, but this is the only time I know of with Mel Lewis. This is a first class rhythm section. Aside from a few short piano solos, it is Stitt all the way. Recommended for Jazz Aficionados!
