I own a CD edition of this LP.
Although Jutta Hipp (who unfortunately retired from jazz not long after this album was recorded) is billed as a star, it is actually Zoot Sims who gives the most impressive performance here...

He shines at jazz standards, like "Violets for your furs" (although he is great at originals as well) and Jutta gives a very nice; modern, restrained but at times also very subtle support. The trumpeter Jerry Lloyd is, in my opinion, the weakest link in this nice straight ahead band, recorded in 1958.
BTW; Jerry Lloyd-attributed original "Down Home" is actually a reworking of an well known standard "(Back Home Again in) Indiana"...

If your buying this, try to get the editions with bonus tracks (my CD also has "These Foolish Things" and "'S Wonderful"); with them the album has 8 tracks.
