Like Fats Navarro and Charlie Parker before him, Sonny Clark's life was short but it burned with musical intensity. Influenced deeply by Bud Powell, Clark nonetheless developed an intricate and hard-swinging harmonic sensibility that was full of nuance and detail. Regarded as the quintessential hard bop pianist, Clark never got his due before he passed away in 1963 at the age of 31, despite the fact that it can be argued that he never played a bad recording date either as a sideman or as a leader.

Recorded in 1957, Sonny's Crib features a front line of Curtis Fuller, Donald Byrd, and John Coltrane with Sonny Clark on piano, Art Taylor on drums, and Paul Chambers on bass. Truly still a bebop recording, done a full year before the landmark Cool Struttin' session, nonetheless the set produced some awesome readings of classic tunes, like the opener, "With a Song in My Heart," with one of the knottiest Byrd solos ever. As Chambers and Taylor up the rhythmic ante and Clark comps with enormous chords in the background, the entire line solos, but it is Byrd's that is stunning in its complexity – though Coltrane could play bebop as well as anybody.

Dial "S" For Sonny is the debut album by jazz pianist Sonny Clark recorded for the Blue Note label and performed by Clark with Art Farmer, Curtis Fuller, Hank Mobley, Wilbur Ware, and Louis Hayes. Dial "S" For Sonny is one of those great old recordings that's worth seeking out to hear some young hard boppers playing their best. The musicians are brilliant, the music is solid, and - in the case of this Music Maters pressing - the reissue is first class all the way.

Genre: Jazz | Label: Xanadu Records

The music on this Xanadu LP includes seven selections from a quartet date featuring guitarist Jimmy Raney, pianist Sonny Clark, bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Bobby White. That particular session has been reissued on CD by Vogue along with five "new" alternate takes, so this album has dropped in value. However, completists will be interested to know that, in addition to that excellent session, Raney and Clark are teamed together with tenorman Gosta Theselius on two other numbers ("Jumping for Jane" and "Invention") that have not yet reappeared. The Raney-Clark partnership did not survive this European tour, which found them mostly backing Billie Holiday; a pity it did not, because the communication between the two masterful players was quite impressive.
