This is one of Sonny Stitt's better recordings from the '60s. Mostly sticking to tenor, Stitt battles fellow tenor Booker Ervin with assistance from the fine organist Don Patterson and drummer Billy James on five selections and a ballad medley from 1964. Because both Stitt and Ervin had very individual sounds, their tradeoffs are quite exciting and end up a draw. Enjoyable and generally hard-swinging music. ~ Scott Yanow
