Annie Ross with Zoot SimsGasser! ... LP
World Pacific, 1959. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Great stuff – one of Annie Ross' rare albums as a solo act away from her trio with Jon Hendricks and Dave Lambert – and a great little session cut with small combo jazz backing, which gives the song a nice swinging edge! Zoot Sims is the main soloist on the tunes, Russ Freeman lays down piano tracks to set the mood – and other players include Jim Hall, Monte Budwig, Mel Lewis, and Bill Perkins – all of whom contribute wonderfully to the album, and give it a nicely grooving west coast finish. Titles include "I Was Doing Alright", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "Lucky Day", "Lucky So & So", and "Nobody's Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Zoot SimsDown Home (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Bethlehem/Lonehill (Spain), 1960. Used ... $8.99
A really great little set from Zoot Sims – earthy, and almost a bit more fragile than much of his other work! There's a real "down home" feel to the whole record – as Zoot blows comfortably and easily in a quartet with Dave McKenna on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums – making a rare non-Mingus appearance for the set! Zoot's horn has a bit more dirt in the tone than on some of his "cleaner" sessions – a style that we like a lot, and which really fits the feeling of the set. Titles include "Doggin' Around", "Avalon", "Jive At Five", "I've Heard That Blues", and "Goodnite Sweetheart". CD also features 6 alternate takes of tunes from the record – plus "These Foolish Things", which is played by another quartet with Dave McKenna, from the Bethlehem album On Campus Ivy League Concert.

✨✧ Zoot SimsPlays Alto, Tenor, & Baritone (plus Zoot) ... CD
ABC/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1956. Used ... $11.99
Two albums on one CD – both of them great! The title set is one of the grooviest 50s albums ever from the legendary Zoot Sims – a session that uses overdubbing to let Zoot create a one man horn section – blowing on record at the same time on alto, tenor, and baritone sax! The approach is far from the gimmicky sound that you might expect – and the results are really wonderful – an all Zoot-voiced sax section that has some of the smoother qualities of other 50s sextet dates (including Zoot's for RCA), but which has that great Sims' bite on all the solos! Other players include John Williams on piano, Knobby Totah on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums – and titles include a great vocal version of "Where You At", plus "Zonkin", "Pegasus", "Noshin", and "Minor Minor". The second album on the set is a bit more straight – the 1959 session on Argo simply titled Zoot – and features Zoot playing mostly tenor. The group's a quartet – with Johnny Williams on piano, Gus Johnson on drums, and Knobby Totah on bass – and Zoot's blowing in an unfettered setting that reminds us a bit of Sonny Stitt in similar settings at the same time! Tracks are shortish, but there's still plenty of room for Zoot to work in a style that's up there with his best bop recordings of the 50s – and at some level, the record's got the same sharp edge as Sims' best early sides for Prestige – but perhaps goes them one better with an added sense of tightness and maturity. The titles are pretty fresh too – and include "Poinciana", "55th & State", "920 Special", "Gus' Blues", and "Bohemia After Dark". CD

Zoot SimsQuietly There – Zoot Sims Plays Johnny Mandel ... LP
Pablo, 1984. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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".

Zoot SimsZoot Sims & The Gershwin Brothers ... LP
Pablo, 1975. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Way more than just a Gershwin Songbook sort of record – thanks to some tremendous blowing here by Zoot Sims, who's mellowed nicely with age, and comes up with a wonderful sound for the record! It may just be us, but there seems to be a lot more soul in Zoot's horn than ever before – more humanity, and a sort of pausing, almost faltering approach to the tunes that takes them way past their overdone versions. The rest of the group includes Oscar Peterson, Joe Pass, George Mraz, and Grady Tate – but the Sims' sound is the main star of the set – and it's really wonderful! Titles include "The Man I Love", "Embraceable You", "Summertime", "Isn't It A Pity", "I've Got A Crush On You", and "Oh Lady Be Good". LP, Vinyl record album

Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A really beautiful later album from Zoot Sims – one that might easily be overlooked, given its understated appearance on a sometimes-cheap label – but a record that really helps Zoot find whole new magic for the 70s! The date's nice and laidback – with great guitar from Bucky Pizzarelli, who himself is really a cut above here – a master of chromes, balancing out the sharply raspy tone that makes Sims' tenor so fantastic – with subtle but strong accompaniment on bass by Milt Hilton, and nicely restrained work by Buddy Rich on drums! The feel is maybe like some of Zoot's work on Pablo, but hipper too – and titles include "Memories Of You", "Summerset", "A Summer Thing", "Somebody Loves Me", and "Nirvana". CD

Chiaroscuro, 1975. Used ... $9.99
Zoot Sims really makes the album cook – adding in a lot more bop sensibility than you might expect on an album with violinist Joe Venuti – and really bringing in a heck of a lot of soul, thanks to his raspy tone on the tenor! The set's got a nicely jumping sort of feel – with John Bunch or Dick Hyman on piano, Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar, and Milt Hinton on bass – and titles include "Avalon", "Russian Lullaby", "Where Or When", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "Shine". CD seems to have a lot more tracks than the album – 14 numbers in all! CD

Swing, 1956. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare French material by Zoot Sims – recorded in Paris in 1956, and with a more stretched-out feel than some of his other Parisian sides of the 50s! The group's a hip quintet with Henri Renaud on piano, Jon Eardley on trumpet, and Charles Saudrais on drums – and the set swings with an open groove that gives Zoot and Eardley plenty of solo space. Originally issued on the Ducret Thompson album, and a lot harder to find than most of Zoot's other work from the time – with titles that include "Captain Jetter", "Nuzzolese Blues", "Evening In Paris", "On The Alamo", and "Little Jon Special".

Cadet, 1956/1960/1965. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 2LP set that features the core album Interaction by Stitt & Sims – plus a lot of additional material from other albums. The core set was recorded in Chicago after the two had played together at the Plugged Nickel in the Windy City! Backing is by the trio of John Young – who gives the album a rolling bottom groove that shows off the Chicago sound of the early 60s quite nicely – and both Stitt and Sims respond with some strong solo work on their own part, opening up a bit more than on other sides at the time. Tracks include three originals by Stitt – "The Saber", "Katea", and "I Want To Go Home" – as well as "My Blue Heaven", "Fools Rush In", and "Look Down That Lonesome Road". Added to that is some material from the Zoot Sims Quartet album on Argo from 1956 – featuring the tracks "That Old Feeling" and "Woody N You" – plus tracks from the 1960 Stitt set Burning – including the tracks "It's Hipper Than That" and "How High The Moon".

Blue Note, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A wonderful pairing of this German pianist and American tenor star Zoot Sims – and an album that may well be the greatest that Jutta Hipp ever cut! Hipp was one of the rising stars of the German postwar jazz scene in the 50s – and although she issued other American albums in the decade for Blue Note and Decca, this side's probably the best-remembered of the bunch – thanks to the presence of Zoot, and support from a great rhythm section that includes Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – both of whom match the modern tones of Jutta's piano, but also give a solidly soulful Blue Note feel to the set. The group's completed by trumpeter Jerry Lloyd, who helps bring a nice sparkle to the frontline – and titles include "Just Blues", "Wee Dot", "Almost Like Being In Love", and "Down Home".

✨✧ Gerry MulliganGerry Mulligan & The Concert Jazz Band On Tour – Guest Soloist Zoot Sims ... LP
Verve, 1962. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really wonderful collection of live work from Gerry's early 60s Concert Jazz Band – a really forward-thinking large group that was one of Mulligan's greatest accomplishments of the time! In some ways, the ensemble worked in a sound that was like that of Mulligan's small group recordings of the 50s – with the horns moving around in free space, interacting beautifully in a fresh, modern, unfettered style. Gerry himself plays a bit of piano on the session, but most of the strength of the set is from the horn interplay from the larger group – from players that include Gene Quill, Bob Brookmeyer, Nick Travis, Gene Allen, Conte Candoli, and star soloist Zoot Sims. Material was recorded on a European tour of the time – and titles include "Go Home", "Barbara's Theme", I Want To Live", "Red Door", and "Apple Core". LP, Vinyl record album

Chet BakerPlays The Best Of Lerner & Loewe (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Riverside, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A record that hides a bit under its title and cover – looking like a songbook session, and without Chet Baker's dreamy face on the front – but one that stands every bit as strongly with Baker's other late 50s sessions for Riverside, and done with an equally nice set of New York elements in the mix! The lineup is nicely unusual for a Chet Baker date – Herbie Mann on flute and tenor, Zoot Sims on alto and tenor, Pepper Adams on baritone, and even some piano from Bill Evans – and even though the tunes are all familiar Lerner & Loewe standards, they really come alive in the handling of these top shelf artists. Titles include "Show Me", "I Talk To The Trees", "On The Street Where You Live", "The Heather On The Hill", "I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face", and "Almost Like Being In Love".

Louis BellsonConcerto For Drums ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Despite the title, the album's not really a "concerto" – so much as it is a very strong small group session by Bellson, one that features some impeccable percussion work! The group's a great one – with Zoot Sims on tenor, Charlie Shavers trumpet, Don Abney piano, and George Duviver bass. The best tracks are even more stripped down than the usual Verve work – with a focus on a specific instrumentals, as on the tracks "Concerto For Drums", "Bassically Speaking, Duviver, That Is", and "Charlie's Blues". Other tracks include "Buffalo Joe", "I'll Remember April", and "Love For Sale". LP, Vinyl record album

Al Cohn & Shorty RogersEast Coast – West Coast Scene ... LP
RCA, 1954. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A classic session in the tried and true marketing style of "East Coast vs West Coast" jazz, with one side of tracks by a group led by Al Cohn, and featuring Gene Quill, Hal McKusick, and Joe Newman. The other side's got Shorty Rogers representin' on the West Coast, with Jimmy Giuffre, Zoot Sims, Bud Shank, and Shelly Manne. The album's a nice batch of tracks, in the tightly arranged style that characterizes many of these mid-50's RCA jazz sessions. However, since Cohn's measured playing could never really be taken for New York Hot, and since his longtime partner Zoot Sims is part of Rogers' West Coast group, it's hard to say that these sides are really any sort of true battle between the coasts. Instead, though, the tracks are nice and long, with more room for solos than usual, and titles that include "Loki", "Cool Sunshine", and "Inside Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy EldridgeLittle Jazz ... CD
Inner City, 1950. Used ... $6.99
There's nothing little about the talents of Roy Eldridge on the trumpet – as you'll hear in this hip set of tracks from the start of the 50s – material recorded in Paris with help from some great American sidemen! Half the tracks feature Roy's trumpet in a quintet with Zoot Sims on tenor, Dick Hyman on piano, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums – grooving in the relaxed, swing-based style that you'd expect from Eldridge's 50s work on Verve. Roy sings just a bit on the set – scatting alongside the lead vocals from Anita Love on a version of "It Don't Mean A Thing" – and singing a duet with Anita on the R&B-ish "There Ain't No Flies On Me". Other tracks include "King David", "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams", and "The Man I Love". Remaining tracks are also from Paris in June of 1950 – and feature Gerry Wiggins on piano, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – on instrumental tunes that include "Wild Driver", "Easter Parade", "If I Had You", "Nuts", and "Goliath Bounce".

Craft, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 5CD ... $62.99 69.99
Bill Evans has been off the planet for decades now, but he's definitely still dug by most folks – one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time, and an artist whose sound is still a huge inspiration to many! This package does a great job of gathering together Bill's legacy, and advancing it too – as the set features the unissued live concert from 1975 that has also been released as On A Friday Evening – plus four more CDs' worth of music from the full range of his recording career from 1956 to 1980. Bill even plays a bit of electric piano at times – and other artists include Cannonball Adderley on alto, Zoot Sims and Harold Land on tenor, Eddie Gomez and Sam Jones on bass, Paul Motian and Jack DeJohnette on drums, Jim Hall on guitar, and Tony Bennett on vocals. The whole thing comes in a very cool hardcover book-style package, with lots of notes and rare photos – and in addition to the 9 tracks on the On A Friday Evening CD, the set features 52 more from vintage releases – a total of 61 tracks in all!

Stan GetzStan Getz (Prestige – early singles/Stan Getz With Cal Tjader) ... CD
Prestige, 1949/1950/1958. Used ... $9.99
A 2LP set that compiles early recordings made by Getz for Prestige – about half of them titles that were issued on early singles, combined with material from the album Stan Getz With Cal Tjader. The early singles feature a few tunes with the "brothers" style sound – Brew Moore, Allen Eager, Zoot Sims, and Al Cohn on tenor with Stan – plus some other quartet sides. The Cal Tjader album is killer record from the late 50s – and one that hints at all the sides Stan would take in later years: his bossa sides, his vibes quartet with Gary Burton, and the playful lyricism of his recordings with Chick Corea. The set was recorded in San Francisco, when Stan had that great bassist Scott LaFaro in his group, and when he was brought into the studio by Fantasy to meet with local talents like Cal Tjader, Eddie Duran, and Vince Guaraldi. Billy Higgins is also added on drums, giving the set a lively songlike sound that's just great. The group works incredibly well together, and it's a shame they only really gelled for this rare non-Verve session. Titles include "Big Bear", "Crow's Nest", "Lady In Red", "Prezervation", "Five Brothers", "Crazy Chords", "Long Island Sound", "My Buddy", and "Ginza Samba". CD

Fantasy, Mid 50s. Used ... $6.99
Bold work from Elliot Lawrence – one of the groovier big band leaders on the west coast of the 50s – and one of the few who really found a way to mix older modes and some of the modern changes going on at the time! Lawrence's music almost always has a groove – his audience were often dancers at some of the bigger spots on the coast – but he also finds a way to fold in some strong solo work too, but all without some of the more academic tones that would come from a group like Stan Kenton's. Key soloists here include Al Cohn and Zoot Sims on tenor, Hal McKusick on alto, Nick Travis and Ernie Royal on trumpets, and Eddie Bert and Urbie Green on trombone – and the set features material from the albums Plays Tiny Kahn & Johnny Mandel Arrangements, Swinging At The Steel Pier, and Plays For Swinging Dancers. Titles include "Blue Room", "Who Fard That Shot", "Blues Alley", "Ponce", "Tenderly", "Walkin My Baby Back Home", "Hackin Around", "Cupcake", "Ivy Walk", "Handmade", "Nightfall", "Jazz Lullaby", and "Mood Midnight".

The group recorded a few albums for Verve in the early 60s, but this 3CD package presents never-heard performances recorded in Paris during the same time – very fitting, given that the "concert" in the group's name was a reference to their ability to improvise amidst structure – of which you'll hear plenty here, with a lineup that includes Zoot Sims on tenor and Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone. The tracks are very well-recorded, and many are quite long – with titles that include "Blueport", "Utter Chaos", "Spring Is Sprung", "Five Brothers", "Black Nightgown", "Eighteen Carrots For Rabbit", "Out Of This World", "I'm Gonna Go Fishin", "Apple Core", and "Barbara's Theme".

Gerry MulliganMainstream Of Jazz ... LP
EmArcy, 1956. Very Good- ... $6.99
Gerry Mulligan's still far from the mainstream of jazz on this sweet little set – a great date that expands nicely from the mellower styles of the Pacific Jazz years – expanding the group a bit, with some really great results! In addition to Mulligan's usual baritone sax, Gerry also plays a bit of piano on one track – reconciling himself with the instrument, and using it in surprisingly soulful ways. Other players include Zoot Sims on tenor, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, either Don Ferrara or Jon Eardley on trumpet, and Dave Bailey on drums. Tracks are long and nicely open – a bit less tightly arranged than some of Mulligan's work on Pacific Jazz – and titles include "Lollypop", "Igloo", "Blue At The Roots", "Elevation", and "Mainstream". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ParkerJazz At Midnight (blue vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Blue Note, 1952/1953. New Copy ... $24.99
The first-ever vinyl release of material from two Charlie Parker appearances at the Howard Theater in Washington DC – one set recorded in 1952, the other in 1953 – debuting on vinyl from the CD-only release The Washington Concerts! Bird is wonderful throughout – with that kind of special, inventive edge that always makes his live material as essential as his studio work – solos that make renditions of familiar tunes come across as newly revelatory passages. Side one features the 1953 material – with a quartet that includes Jack Holliday on piano, Franklin Skeete on bass, and Max Roach on drums – on versions of "Cool Blues", "Anthropology", "Ornithology", and "Out Of Nowhere". Side two features a larger group from 1952 – with Bill Shanahan on piano, Charlie Byrd on guitar, Mert Oliver on bass, and Don Lamond on drums – playing "Scrapple From The Apple" – then expanded with the addition of Charlie Wilp on trumpet, Kai Winding and Earl Swope on trombones, and Zoot Sims on tenor – on a medley of "Out Of Nowhere/Now's The Time".

Oscar Pettiford/Red MitchellJazz Mainstream (aka Basically Duke & Happy Minor) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1954. Very Good ... $8.99
An interesting LP, where Bethlehem pulled together two previous 10" sessions led by bassists for one LP! Pettiford's Basically Duike is a beautiful set – ostensibly a session of Ellington material, but one that features some great arrangements that really blow past the obvious! The group's an octet, with Pettiford leading trumpeters Clark Terry & Joe Wilder, trombonist Jimmy Cleveland, clarinetist Jimmy Hamilton, and alto saxophonist Dave Schildkraut – with Earl Knight on piano, taking Ellington's place in the arrangements. Titles include 2 Pettiford originals – "Tamalpais" and "Swing Until The Girls Come Home" – plus a Terry number called "Chuckles", and the tracks "Mood Indigo" and "Jack The Bear". The second side is an obscure side from Red Mitchell, a tight little sextet session featuring a group of LA players that includes Zoot Sims, Bob Brookmeyer, Claude Williamson, Stan Levey and Conte Candoli. The set cooks nicely, a snapping west coast bop side that's hard to come by in any format. Titles include "Happy Minor", "Bluesology", "Kelly Green" and "Scrapple From The Apple".

Johnny Smith with Stan GetzMoonlight In Vermont ... CD
Roulette, 1952/1953. Used ... $6.99
A beautiful document of some of the most laidback jazz ever recorded – the sublime 50s recordings of the Johnny Smith group, done at a time when the lineup included Stan Getz! The tunes on the set feature Johnny's mellow electric guitar setting the pace, alongside wonderfully-blown early solos from Stan, plus some other tenor work from Zoot Sims and Paul Quinichette, who also sit in the tenor chair on a few of these recordings. The tunes are mostly standards, but done in a great style that's not exactly cool jazz, but which has a groundbreakingly easy groove that's simply sublime! CD features a number of bonus and unreleased cuts, with 19 tracks that include "What's New", "Yesterdays", "Vilia", "Ghost Of A Chance", "Jaguar", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Tabu", and "Where Or When".

Tracks are nice lengthy rakes of Basie classics, with plenty of solo space – a bit tighter than a more traditional jam session, probably because the players get along so well together! 5 numbers in all, including "Doubling The Blues", "Hanging Out", "Red Bank Blues", "One-Nighter" and "Freeport Blues".

Groove Merchant, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mixed bag of work from Buddy and Hamp – part straight jazz, and part sweet electric funk! The first two-thirds of the album features Rich and Hampton with Terry Wilson on piano, Zoot Sims on tenor, and George Duvivier on bass – grooving hard in that open-ended way of some of Hampton's small group dates for Verve from the early 50s, on titles that include "Avalon", "Ring Dem Bells", "Ham Hock Blues", and "Air Mail Special". The last third of the album features a larger group – still with Rich and Hampton, but also with some keyboards from Kenny Barron, plus tenor by Sal Nistico and guitar from Jack Wilson. The vibe on these tracks is a bit more 70s-styled – with some of the soaring electric modes you might expect from Groove Merchant! Titles include "EG" and "Fum" – both great funky numbers!

Zoot Sims is the main soloist on the tunes, Russ Freeman lays down piano tracks to set the mood – and other players include Jim Hall, Monte Budwig, Mel Lewis, and Bill Perkins – all of whom contribute wonderfully to the album, and give it a nicely grooving west coast finish. Titles include "I Was Doing Alright", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "Lucky Day", "Lucky So & So", and "Nobody's Baby". CD features bonus cuts too! CD

✨✧ John Coltrane & Hank MobleyTenor Conclave (second cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1956. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Tenors can't get any more conclaved than this – as the record brings together 4 players on the instrument in a great match from 2 of the best sides of 50s jazz! John Coltrane and Hank Mobley represent the more open, soulful side of the spectrum – and Al Cohn and Zoot Sims the tighter, more smartly arranged aspect. Together, the quartet of horns work in an open-ended blowing mode with rhythm by Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Art Taylor – in a way that almost makes the set a "Coltrane plus" album for Prestige – one that has the structure of some of the best Trane/Garland sides for the label, but which blows in some other horns with different voicings. If you ever needed a record to demonstrate the subtler shadings of genius within 50s modern jazz, yet still convince you that it could also be relaxed and spontaneous, this record may well be the one. Titles include 2 standards – "Just You, Just Me" and "How Deep Is The Ocean" – plus 2 Mobley originals – "Tenor Conclave" and "Bob's Boys". LP, Vinyl record album

EmArcy/Lonehill (Spain), 1955/1956. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful package that brings together 3 complete Mercury albums by the Gerry Mulligan Sextet – as well as a number of bonus tracks too! The whopping set is a great document for this unique point in Mulligan's career – a time when he took things to the next level after his famous Pacific Jazz recordings, and improved upon his already groundbreaking style by complicating the horn parts even more! The lineup includes John Eardley and Don Ferrara on trumpets, Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone, Zoot Sims on tenor sax, and rhythm by either Peck Morrison and Bill Crow on bass, as well as Dave Bailey on drums. Although players shift a bit throughout, there's a really unified feel to the work here – even when piano is let back into the group through the back door – played a bit by either Mulligan or Brookmeyer, but in a new way of phrasing – almost rhythm-less in the way it's included as an element. 2CD package features a whopping 28 tracks – including "Mud Bug", "Apple Core", "Bernie's Tune", "La Plus Que Lente", "Blues", "Demanton", "Elevation", "Mainstream", "Igloo", "Blues At The Roots", "Broadway", and "Lollypop".

Dutch Jazz Archive (Netherlands), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Overlooked genius from the Dutch jazz scene of the postwar years – a set of small combo dates that feature trumpeter Rob Pronk, including two groups led by American players too! Pronk's got a tone that's clear, but never too clean – maybe the focused brightness of the young Howard McGhee, mixed with some of the richer feeling of the young Kenny Dorham – almost always matched here by great tenor work, which makes the tracks an equally strong delight! Players include Harry Verbecke, Toon Van Vilet, and Ruud Brink on tenor sax – plus Herman Schoonderwalt on alto, Rob Madna on piano, Ack Van Rooyen and Jerry Van Rooyen on trumpets, and Ruud Pronk and Cees Slinger on drums – and the set then also features an unusual twist – as Pronk steps over to piano, and works in one group with Ake Persson and Frank Rosolino on trombones, and another with Zoot Sims on tenor. There's a huge amount of music here to discover – and the presentation and recording quality is superb – on titles that include "Latecomer", "Four Roses", "Jack's Wax", "Blue Monk", "Funkerin", "Tune", "Sassy", "Minor", "Corner Pocket", and "Monotones".

The remaining 4 tracks feature Stan and Al Cohn, working in a 1952 session with Geroge Wallington and Kai Winding – on some nice light boppish tracks that have that sweet smooth Getz tone firmly in place.
