Bethlehem Records was a major jazz label in the 1950s formed by Gus Wildi with an impressive roster of artists including singers Nina Simone, Carmen MacRae, Chris Conner and Mel Torme, to name a few; arrangers: Marty Paich, Russ Garcia, Frank Hunter; and musicians including: Dexter Gordon, Roland Kirk, Charles Mingus, Frank Rosolino, Herbie Mann, Stan Levey, Art Blakey and many others. The label distinguished itself by giving artists creative control of their projects and presented albums of rather cutting edge graphic design. Its legacy is a lengthy discography that freshly and ambitiously captured and preserved an era of truly amazing music. For many of the artists, their first or greatest recorded work happened at Bethlehem.

1960, when this album was recorded, was one of Zoot Sims' most productive years. The performances here are recognized as being the masterpieces of Sims' middle period. With a skilled rhythm section (Dave McKenna on piano; George Tucker on bass and Dannie Richmond on drums), Sims breathes life into traditional songs. While not a groundbreaking release, this is one album that stands the test of time.

Recorded June 7, 1960 in New York. Mono. Originally released by Bethlehem as BCP6051. This vinyl reissue released in UK by Pure Pleasure in 2012.
