All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Zoot Sims and Al Cohn made many records together in small-group settings, but this isn't one of their better-known dates, though it is a rewarding one. These 1956 sessions recorded for the Jazzland label and reissued under Fantasy's limited-edition OJC imprint feature tenor saxophonist Sims who doubles on alto sax and Cohn playing baritone sax on most of the selections with clarinetist Tony Scott who doubles on tenor, trumpeter Joe Wilder, and trombonist Urbie Green rounding out the front line. Either Marty Paich or Dick Hyman neither of whom play on these pianoless charts contributed the arrangements, all of which fall into the cool category. Though they include quite a few...

Either Marty Paich or Dick Hyman neither of whom play on these pianoless charts contributed the arrangements, all of which fall into the cool category. Though they include quite a few pieces by well-known composers, most of them are lesser-known works, such as George Gershwin's "Treat Me Rough," Vernon Duke's "I Like the Likes of You," and Richard Rodgers' "Where's That Rainbow?" Bassist Trigger Alpert gets some solo time as well and contributed one original, the loping "Trigger Fantasy." Recommended.

    Zoot Arrives in New York!

    An interesting group put together in 1956 - probably just to record this album. Zoot Sims was one of the top tenor men in LA in the early 1950's. About 1955 he moved to New York to seek more fame and fortune, not to mention more consistent work. This album was quite a surprise, as I was not familiar with the original vinyl LP release - which must be quite rare. I've seen a lot of records, but have never seen an original vinyl copy of this. If you're a Zoot Sims fan, you should really add "East Coast Sounds" to your collection. Swingin' charts arranged by Marty Paich and Dick Hyman really show what can be accomplished with some forethought. Some jazz albums just feature solos around a theme with very little ensemble work. When you arrange charts for a given group, you can create a more cohesive and interesting sound, while still allowing room for inventive solos. I was not familiar with Tony Scott (clarinet) or Joe Wilder (trumpet) but both acquit themselves admirably here. Al Cohn is his usual well-accomplished self, both on tenor and baritone sax. Urbie Green is one of the more well known trombone names of this period and typically does a very nice job. The rhythm section keeps things swingin', featuring Ed Shaughnessy on drums. (This review by me was published elsewhere in 2007).

    Very Rare Vinyl LP Now Available on CD

    This group was likely put together just for this album. Arrangers Marty Paich and Dick Hyman show the difference some forethought, rehearsal and good arranging can make to the sound of a group. Tony Scott - on clarinet and tenor - was unknown to me before this CD, and I was glad to discover him. Urbie Green, one of the top N.Y. musicians at this time, plays trombone here. Joe Wilder is another new discovery, for me, on trumpet. Ed Shaughanessey keeps things swinging. He gained wide recognition as The Tonight Show drummer in the 1970's and 1980's. Zoot Sims did not need help to swing. He was always beat perfect and phrase appropriate. He and Al Cohn enjoyed playing together and interacted well. You will enjoy hearing this group, 50 years later, if you like Zoot Sims and Al Cohn or if you are just a jazz fan. I've seen a lot of LP's, but I've never seen this original Jazzland label issue on vinyl.
