Recorded four months before his death and three days after what was thought to have been his final recording, this jam-session CD is notable not only as the last Zoot Sims record but the only one to team him with fellow tenor Scott Hamilton. Since Zoot was one of Hamilton’s idols, the Swedish concert was a happy affair. Joined by pianist Claes Crona, bassist Arne Wilhelmsson, and drummer Per Hulten, the two tenors battle it out (with mutual respect) on lengthy versions of such standards as Gone With the Wind, Indiana, Sunday, and Just You, Just Me. A historic encounter that lives up to expectations and shows that Zoot Sims never did decline.

Founded in 1984 by Bjorn Petersen to preserve the work of Norwegian saxophonist Bjarne Nerem, one of europe’s finest mainstream stylists, Gemini Records turned out to be a great success and went on recording the country’s leading artists playing together with established American stars. A very important factor in the Gemini production philosophy has been the importance of sound quality for today’s jazz buyers. No expense has been spared to get the best production facilities. Gemini is today considered one of the leading labels in the audiophile market and have repeatedly harvested rave reviews in audio magazines for the sound quality
OUTSTANDINGLY GOOD SOUND Gemini albums have been recorded and/or mastered in RAINBOW STUDIO, founded in 1984 by Jan Erik Kongshaug, who is internationally renowned for his recording of more than 250 albums for ECM Records since 1970. By using the best recording equipment (and engineer) Gemini albums maintain the high quality sound from the mastertape. The result is music that comes out of the speakers as vibrant and alive as it sounded in the studio.
