Zoot Sims was known to jazz fans around the world as one of the original "Four Brothers" in the Woody Herman band. He has became known, albeit indirectly, to another generation as the namesake of "The Muppets" cooler-than-cool sax player Zoot with the long blue hair, fedora and the shades. This album concentrates on energetic standards from the swing era arranged for a quartet and features some early impressive piano work from Dave McKenna.

Tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims recorded on a regular basis as a leader for most of 45 years, and virtually all of his many sessions are worth acquiring. Sims's Bethlehem date also gives one a look at the great pianist Dave McKenna in his early days, along with bassist George Tucker and drummer Dannie Richmond. Sims mostly explores standards from the swing era (including a rare version of 'Bill Bailey') on this enjoyable and consistently swinging set.
