"as an alto player, i really appreciate the sounds of desmond on this cd. he has a very airy, mellow, soft sound which is very relaxing. i especially enjoyed the "song to a seagull," with the quiet melody that flows along. i recommend this cd for anyone who plays sax, whatever style of music, or anyone who likes to listen to soft jazz."

"Got this for my dad for Christmas and he closed his eyes and smiled. Then went into a history lesson on Paul Desmond and jazz for me but it was great seeing him so happy over a gift."
More of the "Best"

"No one matches the lyrical sounds of Paul Desmond's Alto. This compilation is great, to say "Best" is inaccurate - "Highlighting" would be better - Paul Desmond is one of the few that produces consistent high quality. No single CD could encompass all his "Best" I have a number of the CD's that are represented here, but it encourages me to obtain some of the others represented here. Especially "Skylark", I love the haunting gypsy guitar of Gabor Szabo. Ballads, Blues or just plain swingin-Desmond is Beautiful and his distinctive sound is Captivating."
