This CD is another wholly swinging and moving recital by Zoot Sims on tenor and alto sax. All the charts feature attractive harmonic patterns and inventive melodic lines by George Handy, who is also part of the rhythm section for both sessions. But what, among other things, makes these sides really essential, is the impressive blowing of Zoot. His conception is wonderfully mature, and, despite the artificiality of the multirecording sides (#8-14), he always plays with penetrating feeling and drive, without sacrificing his unique approach. Once again he emerges here as one of the most genuinely productive reedmen of his time.
