You Talk That Talk! is an album by saxophonists Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt recorded in 1971 and released on the Prestige label.[3]


The Allmusic review stated "You Talk That Talk lacks the can-you-top-this cutting contest duels that the tenor saxophonists could occasionally engage in on-stage. Instead, a relaxed, swinging vibe prevails, as Stitt and Ammons trade choruses over a loose, funky backdrop".[1]
