CD: Zoot Sims

Zoot.jpgZoot Sims in Copenhagen (Storyville). This catches the great tenor saxophonist in a 1978 club performance with the stellar rhythm section of pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels-Henning Ørsted Pederson and drummer Ed Thigpen. No Sims version of “I’ll Remember April,” a staple in his repertoire, has more heat than the one here. I recommend devoting one hearing to concentrating on N-HOP’s bass lines. Storyville reissues this every few years, a good idea; it should be always available.
