Zoot Sims & Shelly Manne In Concert - Dvd ( Ntsc & Pal System - Worldwide Zone )
Zoot Sims (s), Roger Kellaway (p), Chuck Berghofer (b), Larry Bunker (d) / Shelly Manne (d), Ray Brown (b), Hampton Hawes (p), Bob Cooper (s)
Zoot Sims Quartet:
The swinging tenor-saxophonist, joined by pianist Roger Kellaway, bassist Chuck Berghofer and drummer Larry Bunker, is seen at the late lamented Dante's in Los Angeles, 1970. The quartet jams on a cooking 'Zoot's Piece' (based on 'Doxy'), a tender 'My Old Flame' and a medium-tempo 'On the Trail.' Sims is in typically brilliant form, Kellaway is particularly creative on a fast blues piece called 'Motoring Along.' Highly recommended and, in its own way, priceless.
1. Zoot's Piece
2. My Old Flame
3. On the Trail
4. Motoring Along
Shelly Manne Quartet:
Shelly Manne (drums), Ray Brown (bass), Hampton Hawes (piano) and Bob Cooper (saxophone) perform 'Stella by Starlight' and 'Milestones' at Shelly's Manne Hole Club in L.A., 1970.
1. Blues Improvisation
2. Stella By Starlight
This is an attractive souvenir of Los Angeles yesterday. Hampton Hawes appears to good advantage, where the musical atmosphere is cool. He finds the form that distinguished his contemporary trio albums in 'Stella by Starlight.' Ray Brown steals the opening blues, and Bob Cooper also shines on it with Prez-like statements.
