AllMusic Review by

This two-LP set, which contains over 100 minutes of music, combines together an album from 1956 by Zoot Sims (originally titled Zoot Sims Quartet), one from Sonny Stitt from 1958 (Burnin') and 1965's Interaction which features both Sims and Stitt. These sessions (all from the Cadet catalog) are consistently swinging and have a supporting cast that includes either Johnny Williams, John Young or Barry Harris on piano. The Sims-Stitt collaboration is of particular interest as are Sims's rare alto solos on his own date. Worth searching for.
