Produced by Norman Granz, this new “Con Alma” lets you pull apart that Latin jazz masterpiece. The solos are, of course, different — but the pace is more relaxed, too. And Sonny Stitt, the Charlie Parker disciple, plays it long and cool.
There was more, it turns out: When Phil Schapp remastered “Duets” in 1988, they found a new tune (called it “Anythin’,” after an off-hand comment by Diz on the the session) that includes Stitt’s only alto work on the session.
A swinging highlight.
