Overview

Tenor Giants Featuring Oscar Peterson

Pairing Zoot Sims and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis together on stage was an inspired idea, because each of the two tenor saxophonists approach the instrument differently. This CD contains highlights from six concerts during a 1975 tour of Europe, and none have been previously released. The rhythm section is a great one, with Oscar Peterson, Niels Pedersen, and Louis Bellson providing plenty of fuel for the featured soloists. A furious take of "The Man I Love" starts things off in high gear, as Sims' softer solo precedes a hard blowing effort by Davis, as well as some choice licks at the keyboard by Peterson. Both horn players are masterful ballad interpreters as well, as heard on "(I Don't Stand) A Ghost of a Chance," with Sims achieving a somewhat darker tone and Davis incorporating some effective slurs into his solo. The remaining tracks are every bit as enjoyable, so this CD is highly recommended.
