✈

Zoot Sims plays the music of Johnny Mandel – a wonderful combination that makes the record a real standout in Sims' career from the time! The tunes all have a really well-penned quality – that mix of heartfelt and groovy that Johnny Mandel did so brilliantly back in the 60s – often for larger soundtrack modes, but with a sense of feeling that makes them work even better in a small group lineup like this. Of course, it helps that Zoot's raspy tone is leading things off, in a well-recorded setting – and the other players in the group have a cohesive energy that's different than some of the other Pablo dates of the time – more serviceable swingers letting the lead man get all the best space on the tunes. Players include Mike Wofford on piano, Chuck Berghofer on bass, Nick Ceroli on drums, and Victor Feldman on vibes and percussion – and titles include "Zoot", "Quietly There", "Cinnamon & Clove", "Low Life", "Emily", and "A Time For Love".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Lush Life
Prestige/OJC, 1957/1958. Used
A beautiful little album from the young John Coltrane, and one that hides its strong sense of depth behind a familiar jazz standard used as a title! In some way, the record is almost experimental for the time – as side one features the tenor of Coltrane alongside just the bass of Earl May ... CD

Stardust
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used
A mellow soulful classic by John Coltrane – and one of his best-remembered early albums for Prestige! The session has all the gentle glow that you might guess from the title – a laidback, open-ended approach that has Coltrane blowing long solos over rhythms from the trio of Red Garland ... CD

Solo Flight
Pablo/OJC, 1977. Used
