Sonny Clark: Sonny's Conception (CD: Proper, 4 CDs)Sonny Clark: Sonny's Conception (CD: Proper, 4 CDs)
Sonny Clark’s soulful piano was a musical delight. His blues playing had a grace and weight unequalled in jazz before or since. Heroin and alcohol problems brought on a premature and tragic death at the age of 31.

We follow Sonny’s path from early 1954 with early solo performances through to trio tunes from 1960. Along the way we hear Sonny collaborating with the likes of John Coltrane, Art Farmer, Donald Byrd, Max Roach and other leading lights. This 4 CD set comes with a booklet with Sonny’s story and discographical information. (Proper Records)

Sonny Clark: Cool Struttin' (CD: Blue Note RVG)
A bright and breezy late fifties session from the underrated pianist, once said to be Dexter Gordon's favourite accompanist. Despite the presence of four long tracks (plus two bonus cuts not on the original LP), this is no mere blowing date like many others, but it allows plenty of room for Art Farmer, Jackie McLean and the leader to stretch out on 'Sippin' At Bells' and the swaggering title track. Classic Reid Miles cover art to boot.
