Zoot Sims and Glenn Zottola Play the Blues

This is my first gig with Zoot Sims as a young lad. The band was Teddy Wilson , Milt Hinton and Gus Johnson. Teddy was late stuck in traffic so Zoot and I decided to start with a blues.When Zoot found out I was an “ear player” he said “me too” and we locked in immediately.. Priceless experience playing with Zoot and as Milt Hinton called him “The Salt Of The Earth” so true. I put this exchange on my anthology as it was an important moment in my career.
