  1. Nice to see some jazz on here... particularly Sonny Stitt! It was a slippery slope for me once I discovered Sonny Stitt. First came the other "Sonnys" Sonny Criss & Sonny Rollins. Next thing I knew I was delving into Lou Donaldson and Jackie McLean. Then Gene Ammons and Ben Webster. Once I got to the "Hanks" Hank Mobley and Hank Crawford. I realized the list was endless. Check them all out!
