Zoot Sims • The Great Zoot Sims Down Home

Review by Scott Yanow
Tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims recorded on a regular basis as a leader for most
of 45 years, and virtually all of his many sessions are worth acquiring. Sims's Bethlehem date also gives one a look at the great pianist Dave McKenna in his early days, along with bassist George Tucker and drummer Dannie Richmond. Sims mostly explores standards from the swing era (including a rare version of "Bill Bailey") on this enjoyable and consistently swinging set.
