I can't believe that anyone hasn't reviewed this CD yet. Even though it's not a Important Statement (TM) in jazz, it's eminently listenable throughout, with superb efforts from all hands. All of the tracks are 4 stars and better, with "Miss Riverside", "Cry Me a River", "Going to DC", "Aires", and "Black Vibrations" being the particular standouts.
This is a tight, enthusiastic group of musicians, drum, bass, Hammond B3, guitar, trumpet and Stitt playing tenor sax with some alto. All the players except the drummer and bassist have ample opportunities to strut their stuff in extensive solos. Even then the rhythm section is so absolutely outstanding in the way they simultaneously hold the beat like clockwork and highlight what's going on musically you don't need a solo to be blown away by them.
The organist and guitarist are both excellent in their own right, with the organist having a lot of outstanding solo moments as well as being an essential supporting rhythmic element.
The trumpet player on this CD is also a real treat. He consistently puts out a clear mellow full tone that does not falter when he's playing fast, and he always seems to infuse a little syncopation into his playing that enhances the overall effect. I would have to say that his playing is journeyman rather than master level, even though knowing that he's on a record would probably make me feel like I'm in goood hands.
The only thing that really detracts from Stitt's awesome playing is his use of the Gibson Maestro, on the first 5 of the 11 tracks which lends some harshness and nasality to his tone. Even then his playsing and phrasing is so good you can almost ignore it. Indeed in some places you almost can't tell he's got the d___ed thing on.

The entire Legends of Acid Jazz series has some solid high points. This entry for Sonny Stitt is no different. For fans of this genre of music this represents a good choice.
