Dial "S" for Sonny is the debut studio album by jazz pianist Sonny Clark recorded in 1957 for the Blue Note label and performed by Clark with Art. Farmer, Curtis Fuller, Hank Mobley, Wilbur Ware, and Louis Hayes.
The album title is an allusion to Frederick Knott's play Dial M for Murder, which was first produced in 1952 and then made into a successful film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1954.
Critic John S. Wilson, in a contemporaneous review, remarked negatively that "Art. Farmer contributes some crackling solos to Dial S for Sonny, […] but he has to fight a chomp-chomp rhythm section".
An Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine stated: "Dial "S" for Sonny, Sonny Clark's first session for Blue Note Records and his first session as a leader, is a terrific set of laidback bop, highlighted by Clark's liquid, swinging solos… Clark steals the show in this set of fine, straight-ahead bop."
