Сонни Ститт (Sonny Stitt) - американский джазовый саксофонист, игравший в стилях бибопа и хардбоп. Он был одним из самых плодотворных саксофонистов своего поколения, записав более 100 альбомов. Его прозвали "Lone Wolf" ("Одинокий волк") за неустанные гастроли и преданность джазу.

Эдвард Бётнер-младший (Edward Boatner, Jr.) родился 2 февраля 1924 года в Бостоне, штат Массачусетс. Он вырос в городе Сагино, штат Мичиган. Эдвард рос в музыкальной семье, его отец, Эдвард Бётнер, был певцом-баритоном, композитором и профессором колледжа музыки, его брат был классическим пианистом, а мать преподавала фортепиано. Бётнер вскоре была принят в другую семью, Ститт, которая дала ему новую фамилию. Позже он начал называть себя "Sonny" («Сынок»).

Он начал брать уроки игры на фортепиано, когда ему было семь лет, а в дальнейшем учился на кларнете. Сагино был небольшим городом, но в период расцвета джаза биг-бэндов Ститт нашел много возможностей услышать лучших исполнителей вживую или на 78 оборотов в минуту. Местный саксофонист по имени Большой Ник Николас (Big Nick Nicholas) дал Ститту уроки на этом инструменте. Ещё больше навыков Сонни получил от известного в Америке Уорделла Грея (Wardell Gray), не имевшего средств на жилье в отелях в Saginaw и спавшего в спальне Ститта в то время, когда мальчик был на занятиях в школе. В юности Сонни бродил вокруг местных танцевальных залов, когда там проходили джазовые шоу, мечтая о собственном пути на эстраду.

 

Edward "Sonny" Stitt (born Edward Boatner, Jr., February 2, 1924 – July 22, 1982) was an American jazz saxophonist of the bebop/hard bop idiom. He was one of the best-documented saxophonists of his generation, recording over 100 albums. He was nicknamed the "Lone Wolf" by jazz critic Dan Morgenstern, in reference to his relentless touring and devotion to jazz.

Edward Boatner, Jr. was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and grew up in Saginaw, Michigan. He had a musical background; his father, Edward Boatner, was a baritone singer, composer and college music professor, his brother was a classically trained pianist, and his mother was a piano teacher.[1] Boatner was soon adopted by another family, the Stitts, who gave him his new surname. He later began calling himself "Sonny".

In 1943, Stitt first met Charlie Parker, and as he often later recalled, the two men found that their styles had an extraordinary similarity that was partly coincidental and not merely due to Stitt's emulation. Stitt's improvisations were more melodic and less dissonant than those of Parker. Stitt's earliest recordings were made in 1945 with Stan Getz and Dizzy Gillespie. He had also played in some swing bands, though he mainly played in bop bands. Stitt was featured in Tiny Bradshaw's big band in the early forties. Stitt replaced Charlie Parker in Dizzy Gillespie's band in 1945.

Stitt played alto saxophone in Billy Eckstine's big band alongside future bop pioneers Dexter Gordon and Gene Ammons beginning in 1945 when he started to play tenor saxophone more frequently, in order to avoid being referred to as a Charlie Parker imitator. Later on, he played with Gene Ammons and Bud Powell. Stitt spent time at the Federal prison in Lexington Kentucky between 1948–49 for selling narcotics.
