Together Again for the Last Time is an album by saxophonists Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons recorded in 1973 and released on the Prestige label in 1976.[2] The album was the final recording by the pair, who had a long history of collaboration, prior to the death of Ammons in 1974.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review stated "Their similar styles and combative approach made their musical encounters quite exciting and this Prestige LP, their last joint recording, has some strong trade-offs... this is a fine date that is recommended to fans of the two tenors".[1]
