Zoot Sims

October 29, 1925 – March 23, 1985

A long time admirer of Ben Webster, by 1944 sax player Zoot Sims would actually grow to take on his idol’s position in the Sid Catlett Quartet.

An interesting stamp on pop culture left by Zoot Sims is that Jim Henson’s saxophone-playing muppet is named Zoot, after this artist.
