For Zoot - wonderful person, musician, lover, and friend

The show Zootcase is the story of my love affair - yes, literally, - with Zoot Sims. It's also the songs I wrote about him over the years since his death. It's the personal story, of him, the person that I knew, just as a person, not a star, and it's also the story of myself, and how knowing him influenced me and my eventual musical path. It's a love and music story.

It's taken me a long time to tell the story publicly. It's been in my soul for a lot of years. I'm very sensitive to exposing it, and do not want to risk any false colourings. I want it to be real, like Zoot himself. It really is a simple story. I want to honour him.
