A gem from late in Zoot's career

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Recorded less than four years before his death, this quartet session displays Zoot at his lyrical best. If you like the smooth, relaxed style that sets the perfect tone for a romantic evening, you'll find it in four of this CD's seven tracks: "Georgia On My Mind," "The Touch of Your Lips," "Come Closer to Me," and "You Go Your Way." This is how smooth jazz is really supposed to sound.
"I Wish I Were Twins" and "Changes" are lively foot-tappers, and we're also treated to some jamming on soprano sax in the appropriately titled "The Fish Horn." Overall, this is probably the best album from this late in Zoot's career, performed in the quartet setting that was his best showcase. Of the 17 CDs that are currently in my Zoot Sims collection, this one ranks near the top."
