More early Zoot from Paris

"These Vogue reissues are a real pleasure to own. I have acquired several recently and this is another gem from the Paris archives.19 cuts overall with several alternate takes these tunes feature Zoot in both a quartet and sextet format from 1950 and 1953 respectively. Quartet personnel include Gerry Wiggins, Pierre Michelot and Kenny Clarke while the Sextet adds trombonist Frank Rosolino to a mostly French rhythm section. The tunes are mostly up tempo swing numbers with lots of room for Zoot to cut loose and wail. Highly Recommended but not Zoot's best (see That Old Feeling)."
This is the Best Zoot you can get!!!!!!!!!!

"First, the music is fabulous. Second, it comes directly from the tape sources and is wonderfully remastered. If you enjoy early Zoot Sims, then you can't pass up on this album; regardless of what less knowlegable reviewers say- (This is essential). jb"
