Zoot Sims – Compatability
Jump 12-36 (2013)
Delmark has acquired the Jump label and Compatability is the first of many re-issues. Originally issued as a 1955 10″ LP under the leadership of trumpeter Hall Daniels the session features Dick Nash, trombone; Zoot Sims, tenor sax; Bob Gordon, baritone sax; Tony Rizzi, guitar; Paul Atkinson, piano; Rolly Bundock, bass; and Jack Sperling, drums. A top studio arranger, Daniels wrote many scores for motion pictures and is also noted for his work with Les Baxter. Hall composed two originals for this session and wrote wonderful arrangements for two standards. The songs are “The Way You Look Tonight”, “Nash-Ville”, “You Don’t Know What Love Is” and “Compatability” however, there are as many as four varying takes of each song so there’s over 55 minutes.
