With all due respect to Disconforme, this great set is a bit of a misnomer. It should be titled the "Complete Sessions of the Buddy DeFranco Quartet with Sonny Clark. Clark is not the leader here, though he certainly is a tremendous foil for the brilliant clarinetist. These sessions took place over a couple of months in 1954, with a rhythm section that contained bassist Gene Wright and drummer Bobby White. There are 27 tracks included. They range from a stellar reading of Johnny Mercer's "Autumn Leaves" to Clark's own hard bopping,.

Conrad Yeatis "Sonny" Clark (July 21, 1931 – January 13, 1963) was an American jazz pianist who mainly worked in the hard bop idiom. Style:MLA Chicago APA. "Complete Sessions Album.

Clark was born and raised in Herminie, Pennsylvania, a coal mining town east of Pittsburgh. His parents were originally from Stone Mountain, Georgia. His miner father, Emery Clark, died of a lung disease two weeks after Sonny was born. Sonny was the youngest of eight children. At age 12, he moved to Pittsburgh.

If you are a Sonny Clark fan this value-priced set is compelling. There are some missing albums, but this is, after all, a compilation and not an exhaustive box set. In fact, the albums are as originally released, so do not expect alternate takes ad infinitum. It is missing many alternate takes and bonus tracks from the sessions that produced the albums in the compilation, but it has the real meat of each and is how each was originally released.
