USA, 1959, bebop

Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Stitt, & Sonny RollinsSonny Side Up

There’s just so much of a feeling of wholesomeness throughout the first track. I guess it’s because it’s bebop, and who’s not going to feel happier walking on the sunny side of the street? The question you have to ask yourself before proceeding, however, is do you want to continue that easy jaunt up the warm sidewalk, or do you mind tumbling downhill into the Eternal Triangle…and beyond? Your answer will decide whether you press BACK or let the album continue to play. The Sonnys are taking no prisoners. These guys blow.
