Zoot Sims was a musical giant although in a jazz style already unfashionable by the time he was in his creative prime. One of the most innovative, lyrical, and swinging jazz musicians of any time the American jazz tenor saxophonist and soprano saxophonist's attitude, demeanor, and style were jazz you could dance to, close your eyes to or just tap your feet to. He was one hell of an original.
Recorded during the same 1978 European tour that resulted in his Storyville album Live in Copenhagen, Love for Sale: Live in Dublin 1978 documents "Zoot" Sims during a visit to his own ancestral turf. Performing live at the Kilkenny Arts Festival, the imperturbable soprano and tenor saxophonist was backed by pianist Noel Kelehan, bassist Jimmy McKay, and drummer John Wadham. Zoot's discography is crammed with enjoyable and almost invariably excellent offerings born of inspired blowing sessions; However, this great jam date certainly rates with the best of his live albums.
