Overview

Zoot Sims fans have a reason to rejoice for this club date was never released on record before this 2007 CD. Sims, who was in his Pablo period, is heard throughout at the peak of his powers. Joined by a superb rhythm section, Sims plays six familiar standards, the obscure "In the Middle of a Kiss," Gary McFarland's "Blue Hodge," and his closing blues "Morning Fun." Zoot, who switches to soprano on "The Very Thought of You," swings up a storm as usual without playing a single dull or frivolous chorus. Kenny Drew and Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen also have their spots but the focus is mostly on the saxophonist. This set holds its own with Zoot Sims' classic studio performances of the era.
