Only 1 left in stock

Edward Hammond Boatner Jr. was born on February 2nd, 1924 in Boston Massachusetts, but grew up in Saginaw to be an accomplished Jazz saxaphonist, playing throughout the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s on his own and with a host of other artists, recording prolifically. In the 1970s Stitt slowed his recording output slightly and he sadly died on July 22nd, 1982. “Wingate” records was based in Detroit, Michigan founded by Eddie Wingate. Early issues had the label name spelled as ‘WingGate’, but this later changed to just ‘WinGate’. The label design shared the ‘g’ and ‘W’ from the Golden World label design. Wingate was a subsidiary of Golden World, and was in operation from early 1965 until early 1967. The label was purchased by Berry Gordy 1968.
