Zoot Sims, Kenny Drew - Zoot Sims in Copenhagen (APE+CUE)
Please keep seeding as long as you can.
Formerly put out by Storyville, this audiophile CD reissue features the great Zoot Sims performing in a quartet with bassist Niels Pedersen and two notable expatriates: pianist Kenny Drew and drummer Ed Thigpen. Sims, who doubles here on soprano, is in typically swinging form on such numbers as "Too Close for Comfort," "In a Mellowtone," an extended, nearly ten-minute rendition of "All the Things You Are," and "It's All Right With Me." The supporting rhythm section is perfect for this style of music, and Zoot is heard throughout in prime form.
