Artist: SONNY CRISS
Title: “Sonny Criss”
Label: IMPERIAL ~ LP 9020. Monaural pressing on medium thick vinyl, with deep groove. Label is burgundy with silver text.
Year: 1956
Personnel:
Sonny Criss – alto sax
Sonny Clark – piano
Leroy Vinnegar – bass
Lawrence Marable - drums.
Condition:
DISC: Vinyl isVG++with full original gloss. There is one hairline scuff on Side 2, on last 2 tracks that is feelable but only produces a few very minor ticks, no distractions whatsoever. This is a great sounding LP with no loud clicks, pops, or distractions. Very clean sound, very enjoyable listening. Labels are clean. You will need to look long and hard to find a better sounding copy.
I have included sound clips of the final two tracks on Side 2 (from this actual LP, and not modified or altered in any way) so you can hear what you are getting. Winning bidder will not be disappointed.
JACKET: Laminated jacket is EXCELLENT with nice clean, bright panels. Bottom seam has a minor split (approximately 2 inches) at center. Otherwise seams, spine, and surfaces are excellent. Overall a very fine jacket you will be proud to display.

  • Memories of You
  • Wailin’ with Joe

  • Blue Prelude
  • After You’ve Gone
  • Come Rain or Come Shine
  • How High the Moon
  • If I Had You

Review:
By the mid-'50s, William "Sonny" Criss was maturing as a significant voice on the alto saxophone. Heavily influenced by Charlie Parker, much of Criss' earlier output was plagued by a hurried time feel, awkward phrasing and an uncomfortably tense vibrato. Go Man!, one of three dates he did for the Imperial label, showcases a confident, energetic Criss on ten standard tunes and two original lines. This hard-to-find collection is a must-have for fans of pianist Sonny Clark, heard in fine form (a bit more aggresive and "on top of the beat" than usual) along with the very coherent team of bassist Leroy Vinnegar and drummer Lawrence Marable. Only 24 years old at the time of recording, Clark had recently settled in California and was establishing himself as an inspired accompanist and soloist with the groups of Buddy DeFranco and Howard Rumsey. Clark's piano introduces nearly every cut on this recording, and his crisp, inventive soloing is a perfect compliment for Criss' brightly expressive, lightening quick lines. Overall, a lively assortment of concisely rendered, boppish treatments.
