Constellation is an album by saxophonist Sonny Stitt recorded in 1972 and released on the Cobblestone label.[2]

Reception[edit]

Scott Yanow of Allmusic called the album "one of Sonny Stitt's greatest recordings. The bop master is stunning on most of the eight selections... switching between alto and tenor and sounding quite creative... this set has more than its share of great moments".[1]
