Sonny Stitt – Edward Sonny Stitt was an American jazz saxophonist of the bebop/hard bop idiom. He was one of the best-documented saxophonists of his generation, recording more than 100 albums and he was nicknamed the Lone Wolf by jazz critic Dan Morgenstern, in reference to his relentless touring and devotion to jazz. Parker is alleged to have remarked, Well, Ill be damned, you sound just like me, to which Stitt responded, Well and its the only way I know how to play. Kenny Clarke remarked of Stitts approach, Even if there had not been a Bird, Stitt had played in some swing bands in the early 1940s and was featured in Tiny Bradshaws big band in the early forties. He replaced Charlie Parker in Dizzy Gillespies bopbig band in 1945 and in 1946 made the first recordings under his own name for Savoy Records, later on, he played with Gene Ammons and Bud Powell.
