Dig Him! is an album by saxophonists Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt recorded in 1961 and originally released on the Argo label in 1962.[3] The album was subsequently rereleased as We'll Be Together Again on the Prestige label in 1968.


The Allmusic review stated "The two tenors always brought out the best in each other, and luckily, they would get back together in the early '70s. This is high-quality bebop".[2]
