'Blues Ahead' off the 'Dueces Wild' album. He sounds a bit like Lou Donaldson tone-wise... It's on iTunes.

My favorite Stitt blues solo is called Jack Spratt it is on an album simply called "Sonny Stitt." I believe it is on Chess records.

(Tenor)

"Counter Clockwise" from the aforementioned "Blues Up & Down" with Gene Ammons is also a goldmine of blues licks and a lesson in how to build a solo.

I must've bought that CD a dozen times because I keep running into younger guys that have never heard it. I lend them the CD and never see it again.
