Stitt recorded a lot of albums for Prestige from at least 1949-1976, so I don't know how much we can generalize about those. Two of his very best were produced by Don Schlitten for Muse in 1972, "Constellation" and "Tune Up."

Was fortunate to have access to the recording "The Divine One" on vinyl via my Dad's collection. Great arrangements, and marvelous solo work by Harry Edison. Still one of my favorite Sassy albums.

Don't forget Sarah's earlier Columbia works, with songs like A Blues Serenade, Spring Will Be a Little Late This Year, and The Nearness OF You. Great stuff!

Rab Hines

Ditto on "The Divine One" - one of the very few vocal album/CDs I ever bought.

I was so knocked out by "It Ain't No Use" on the Smithsonian Classic Jazz collection way back when, that I tracked down a copy on Bleeker Street; and proceeded to wear it out.

That track was later removed from newer editions of the Smithsonian set, but it stills floors me every time I hear it.

Thanks, Marc.
