The cool cat records again, this time with TakeTen.
Emma Mkrtchian | Davis, CA USA | 06/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Paul Desmond,the unremarkable alto saxophonist, records yet another set of cool solos where what he does best, lyrical, thoughtful, bird-like playing is showcased. This time he pairs up with guitarist Jim Hall, himself a musical genius. "Take Ten" showcases the lyrical conversations between the alto saxophone and the guitar set against single-note lines. Desmond quotes himself from a Middle Eastern tune he wrote following the release of "Take Five". The CD as a whole is a must have. "Alone Together", one of the more up beat tracks on the CD along with , "The Theme From Black Orpheus", and "The One I love", should be the subject of all Paul Desmond inspired saxophonists becauase they portray the saxophionist at his best playing phrase after phrase of melancholic,beautiful melodies. This CD includes my most favorite take of the Brazilian tune "Black Orpheus". If you are a Paul Desmond fan or if you like cool jazz, this is the CD to buy. I dont believe you can go wrong with Paul Desmond, particularly with this CD."

"I've owned this album for many years and never got tired of listening to the artistry of these guys. I can't believe PD died in 1977 and still has such an impact on the tonal concepts of alto saxophone players everywhere."
