Zoot Sims: Compatibility

Sign in to view read count
Nella variegata carriera di Zoot Sims, questo CD da tempo introvabile occupa uno spazio artisticamente non trascurabile anche se misconosciuto. Ha fatto bene la Delmark a ristampare, con tutte le sue alternative takes, questa seduta di registrazione del 1955,che lo vede impegnato al fianco del trombettista Hal Daniels.

Quest'ultimo compone ed arrangia la gran parte dei brani in scaletta, rivelando una penna ricca di inventiva e swing. Le due formazioni di ampio respiro assecondano al meglio i raffinati arrangiamenti, mettendo anche in luce i notevoli Bob Gordon al sax baritono e Dick Nash al trombone.

Improvvisando con il suo proverbiale swing rilassato, l'etereo sax tenore di Zoot Sims è la ciliegina sulla torta di un CD davvero avvincente. Le tredici tracce proposte esaltano in questa tappa misconosciuta del cool jazz le potenzialità di una penna ricca di sottigliezze e dal dinamico interplay. Si impone una musica raffinata, costruita con eleganza per valorizzare le varie voci solistiche. Se Daniels è la mente, ci pensa Sims a far volare gioiosamente lo swing grazie ad una straordinaria inventiva melodica e colloquiale.
