Superb playing by all participants, especially by Elvin, although there's a a bit too much echo/ reverb on the recordings for my taste. In one point I beg to differ, Marc: I don't think that Adams "put Sims on the defensive". Zoot was never a technical player, but he surely had rhythm, and could swing like no one else, Stan Getz included. His responses to Pepper's "attacks" on this particular track are highly sophisticated IMHO.
