Picture the scene: 5 pm on a Saturday afternoon in December. A father of two small children is making the evening meal. Then, courtesy of Radio Three's Jazz Record Requests, comes the track "Cinnamon and Clove" played by Zoot Sims. All thoughts of slicing onions falls away as the middle-aged Englishman (who should know better) boogies around the kitchen. The children go hungry for five more minutes: this is an awesome bossa-nova inspired track - tea can wait!

This is a delightful album. Perfectly played, flowing and charming with the sense of Bossa-nova rythms captured by Zoot and the boys. Cinnamon and Clove is the highlight, but the remaining tracks all share the fun and excitement of the first. The tracks "Quietly There" and "Zoot" are both a pleasure to hear.

Not mind-blowing or hugely original in some ways, but the world is a better place for musicians like Zoot Sims and albums like this. One small thing: the sound quality is very good indeed with a fabulous acoustic - listening on CD makes this a much better experience than a compressed download.

This is a beautiful set. Relaxed ,swinging and good humored but not without out feeling,this is the kind of disc to with which to unwind at the end of a hard day. As always, Zoot displays his lovely warm sax tone and thoughtful approach to music making throughout. Zoot and his colleagues makes it seem all so easy, but listen closely and you'll hear a lifetime of experience in these tracks. Sadly a year after this album was recorded Zoot had died. But there is no sense of any lack of ideas or prowess here. Zoot simply fits. There is something in his ability to make his presence felt- be it the purity of his sound, the gentle way he makes his entrance or his ability to glide over the rhythm section with his perfectly formed,unhurried,phrases all contribute to the idea that here was a complete musician.

Top tracks -well no clinkers on board. 'Cinnamon and Cloves' is a lovely Bossa tune and the relaxed blusiness of 'Zoot' is a real treat to the ears. Highly recommended. Don't expect any fireworks or any ground breaking musical expiriements, just love the sound of a great band and a towering sax genius doing what they do best.
