✨✧ Zoot Sims, Phil Woods, and OthersJazz Mission To Moscow ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Jazz from the heart of the cold war – not actually recorded in Moscow, but featuring a bunch of hip players on their return from a tour of the Soviet Union – a historic moment in which west met east, with some groovy jazz in the offing! Apart from the tenor of Zoot Sims and alto of Phil Woods, the record also features flute and alto from Jerry Dodgion, trombone from Willie Dennis, trumpets from Markie Markowitz and Jimmy Maxwell, and piano from Eddie Costa – and the set features arrangements from Al Cohn on tracks that hit the 5 minute range – tight at the top, with breakaway solos, as you might hear during some of the Cohn/Sims sides for RCA during the 50s! Titles include "Let's Dance", "Mission To Moscow", "The Sochi Boatman", and the obligatory "Russian Lullaby". CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

Coleman Hawkins/Zoot Sims/Phil WoodsSaxes Inc (plus Trombone Scene) ... CD
Warner/Lonehill (Spain), 1956/1959. Used ... $16.99
2 rare large group sets – back to back on one CD! First up is Saxes Inc – a unique sax-heavy session done by Warner Brothers, and a blaring batch of tracks played by an all-star all-sax group that includes Herb Geller, Phil Woods, Gene Quill, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Seldon Powell, Hal McKusick, and Georgie Auld! Bob Prince arranged and conducted, and the approach is surprisingly modernist, with the saxes carrying the bulk of the rhythm and melody, as well as the solos – a really great approach that makes for plenty of unique moments – all handled with a sound that's a lot more fluid than you might expect! Titles include "Four Brothers" (of course!), "The Gypsy", "Night In Tunisia", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", and "Axmobile". The second album here is the even rarer 1956 set Trombone Scene – a session done with a much smaller group arranged by pianist Elliot Lawrence, and featuring the talents of four key trombonists – Eddie Bert, Jimmy Cleveland, Urbie Green, and Jimmy Knepper. The sound isn't nearly as full or wide as other records of the type – and there's almost a style that's similar to the JJ Johnson/Kai Winding four trombone project for Debut – except that this one's a bit more tightly arranged. Tracks are shortish, but feature plenty of personality from all players – and titles include "Plungin In", "Hackin Around", "Slim Jim", "Sorta Rumbish", "Hambone", "Sonny's Side", and "Up & Out". CD

Zoot Sims/Al Cohn/Herb Steward/Serge ChaloffFour Brothers Together Again ... CD
Vik/Sony (France), 1957. New Copy ... $8.99 11.99
A set that's great in two different ways – first in that it revives the "four brothers" sound of four saxophonists at once, first forged in the Woody Herman band of the late 40s – and secondly, because the album's a further demonstration of the magical pairing of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims! The group here is only part of a recreation of the Herman lineup, as Al's presence is new – but he also contributes a lot to the songs and arrangements, which really make the small group setting sparkle. Tenors are by Cohn, Sims, and Herbie Steward – and Serge Chaloff plays baritone – with rhythm from Elliott Lawrence on piano, Burgher Jones on bass, and Don Lamond on drums. A number of tunes are new – not just remakes of Herman classics, but titles that riff on and modernize the earlier spirit – and tracks include "Ten Years Later", "Four & One More", "So Blue", "The Swinging Door", "Aged In Wood", "Here We Go Again", "The Pretty One", and "Four Brothers".
