Zoot! album for sale Product Description

For a little while in the mid-'50s, Zoot Sims occasionally doubled on alto although he soon switched back exclusively to tenor where he had a stronger musical personality. On the CD reissue of Riverside's 1956 Zoot!, Sims plays alto on two of the seven tracks and works well with trumpeter Nick Travis. Actually, pianist George Handy, who contributed four originals (two standards and drummer Osie Johnson's "Osmosis" complete the program) and did all of the arranging, comes across as the key supporting player; bassist Wilbur Ware and Johnson are fine in quiet support. Although Handy's arrangements are a bit modern, this is still a typically hard-swinging and melodic Zoot Sims date. ~ Scott Yanow Although it is common for a musician's debut album as a leader to bear his/her name on the front cover, Zoot was by no means Zoot Sims' first session or album under his own name. In fact, his first session as a leader (also in a quartet format), had been recorded six years earlier, on April 23, 1950, when he waxed three tunes in Sweden (one tune, in fact, was a quintet, with the addition of Toots Thielemans on harmonica). From that point forward he would record plenty of times as both a leader and a sideman prior to this album being made. Sims would also record a second album with exactly the same quartet as the one featured on Zoot in November 1956, titled Zoot Sims Plays Alto, Tenor and Baritone. He plays mostly tenor on Zoot, switching to alto on "Bohemia After Dark". Recorded at Reeves Sound Studios, New York, New York on December 13 & 18, 1956. Originally released on Riverside (228). Includes liner notes by Orrin Keepnews. Personnel: Zoot Sims (alto & tenor saxophone); Nick Travis (trumpet); George Handy (piano); Wilbur Ware (bass); Osie Johnson (drums).
