Zoot Sims: Zoot Suite
Title: Zoot Suite
Label: Highnote

Throughout his career, Zoot Sims was famous for epitomizing the swingin musician, never playing an inappropriate phrase. He always sounded inspired and from the 1950s onward, Zoot's enthusiasm and creative never wavered. A freelancer throughout most of his career, Sims often led his own combos and co-led bands with his friend Al Cohn. Zoot started doubling on soprano quite effectively in the 1970s. Through the years, he appeared in countless situations, and always exhibited impeccable musicianship, good taste and no small amount of improvisational heat. Here is a live session which finds Zoot in the company of pianist Jimmy Rowles, bassist, George Mraz and the underappreciated drummer, Mousey Alexander.
