A masterwork of jazz. Whilst being traditional the album incorporates classical elements at times such as on the elegent track Body and Soul. There are a couple of samba tracks as well. The recording can seem a little dated at times and sometimes there is mild background noise on some tracks but overall the album is well worth a purchase, easily comparable with much of Miles Davis's work. At the prices it sells for, a must have. 96/100

Here in this one album you can listen to the musical development of a sax player extraordinaire: the silky, seductive sounds of a genius. From every track on this compilation CD comes the gentleness, warmth and musicianship of a human who considered himself the world's slowest sax player. None of the raucous intensity of screaming horns here - instead savour the purity of sax, guitar and rhythm section and marvel at the depths of feeling that Paul Desmond expressed with such seeming ease. His untimely death in 1977 left an enormous hole in jazz music. Listening to this album makes us realise why it is that the hole has been impossible to fill.

Just a beautiful album of well known standards played immaculately as ever by a guy who was for too long in Dave Brubeck's shadow.His wistful style was and still is unique to Modern Jazz.A sad loss at such an early age.

Every note is a pleasure and the experience of listening to a man so at one with his music is something rarely witnessed elsewhere. Narrowly edges "A Kind of Blue" for sheer class....

For those who like smooth jazz, and particularly Alto Sax, this Paul Desmond CD (Feeling Blue) is a very good price, for some nice, easy listening jazz to relax to. If you are a Dave Brubeck fan, you should like this.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A subtle and gorgeously seductive album, with a couple of tiny and mercifully short string accompaniments that one can cheerfully forgive and forget. Otherwise, lie back, listen, and absorb at several levels. This is chamber jazz, utterly seductive, the epitome of cool, and it can be used in the best sense. It is a perfect background, it is balanced and calm, and it can quietly assert itself if you let it. A distinct tone permeates almost every note this great sax player made, and he found a perfect partner in Jim Hall. Listen with half your brain or all of it or none of it; this is mellow and charming. Five stars for sure, and buy it, and bask in the warm bath that was Desmond and Hall together. On a desert island, this will be magic. It is not, nor can it be, the music of Beethoven or Wagner, which dares to take us to very profound heights and depths. But - an important but - mellow jazz is the Blandings Castle of everyday solace in a musical form. P G Wodehouse cannot be Shakespeare, but he is perfect for a gloomy day, a day when Shakespeare is probably not the best voice to turn to. Wodehouse has broad appeal, which is not the same as saying the writing is dumb or uninspired. Desmond and Hall deserve a place in your head.

This is a cracking cd, which I bought on impulse, along with others due to its astoundingly low price. i love Paul Desmond for his subtlty and delicacy, and this showcases it well.

Although I'm more of a jazz listener, I must admit to not having heard of Paul desmond. I was persuaded to check out this album based on the previous reviews.Im so glad I bought the album. Every track is a joy to listen. Loved the guitar.
This album has reinvogorated my interest in jazz and Paul Desmond
