5.0 out of 5 stars Take Ten 30 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Everything about this album sparkles: the clean, tactile recording, the smooth, mellifluous sound of Paul Desmond's alto sax, the way in which the band plays together in a seamless but complex manner, and the selection of tunes, some of which, like Take Ten, having different time signatures.

Each piece sparkles and you can always find something new to listen for and catch your ear. If you like Paul Desmond, or the Dave Bruback Quartet of that era, this CD will fit in extremely well to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proper jazz 9 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Paul Desmond, famously saxophonist with the Dave Brubeck quartet, with one of his many "solo" recordings. The album title nods towards one of the most famous Brubeck Quartet songs (also written by Desmond), but in no way does Desmond stand in anyone's shadow.

These are recordings which typify the golden age of 60's jazz: standard tunes given new life with gently shifting arrangements, loads of space around the music, plenty of time to explore the melody, and terrific playing from all the participants, although that glorious sax stands centre stage.

And the quality of the recording puts the modern techno meisters to shame: when you think of the limits of the technology at the time, how do these records SOUND so wonderful?

If you haven't heard any of Desmond's solo recordings try this or "Feeling Blue" which is possibly even better: if you like good tunes played by masters of their instruments and genre, you couldn't possibly be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice! 3 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It goes without saying that if you like The Dave Brubeck Quartet, then you should really like this too, for me this is a very cool album with a great laid-back feel, played by brilliant musicians, and a must have for your music collection!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet & Lovely! 1 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
PD was probably the finest exponent of alto sax playing after CP 's early demise. Such note range and delicacy. His playing can cut the mustard with a multiplicity of personal tastes.

One of the greats and reviews are totally unnecessary! I have never heard a poor concert or record and just wish that he was still around today.This record highlights his usual brilliance.
