Dizzy Gillespie brings together tenor saxophonists Sonny Stitt and Sonny Rollins for four extended cuts, and in the process comes up with one of THE most exciting “jam sessions” ever recorded in the entire Verve jazz catalog.

The story goes that Dizzy egged each musician on, telling both separately, “Man, Sonny is going to kick your a – on this recording!” And boy can you hear the battle! Check out the 14 minute version of “The Eternal Triangle” for some serious tenor fireworks…

While the rhythm section of pianist Ray Bryant, bassist Tommy Bryant, and drummer Charlie Persip provides solid rhythmic support, Stitt and Rollins get down to business trading fours and reeling off solo fireworks. Gillespie adds his own split commentary on the proceedings with a casual solo on “After Hours” and a competitively blistering statement on “I Know That You Know.”

With an at ease rendition of “On the Sunny Side of the Street” rounding things out, Sonny Side Up comes off as both a highly enjoyable jazz set and a marvelous example of the once-revered live cutting session. This is simply a most-have for any serious jazz afficianado!

1 On the Sunny Side of the Street 5:41
2 The Eternal Triangle 14:10
