Autum Leaves - Zoot Sims 1985
In 1985 somewhere in Sweden, Zoot played a session together with two top jazz musicians.
In a comfortable living room he recorded with bassist Red Mitchell and guitarist Rune Gustafsson the old and famous standard called Autumn Leaves.
Zoot died that year, unfortunately at only 59. This might have been his last recording.
Red Mitchell was the musician who tuned his bass in fifths, just like the violin and and the cello and this shows in his creative and unique solo work .
Rune Gustafsson, maybe it was done in his house, recorded already with Zoot in the late seventies.
All together this was done in a relaxed atmosphere and that shows in what you hear.
