Paul Desmond – Take Ten

Paul Desmond – Take Ten

I guess everybody knows Paul Desmond from “Time out” and from his composition Take Five. On this recording, it doesn’t take much time to recognize his beautiful floating tone, his wonderful solos which are new melodies by themselves, his “cool jazz” signature. On this repertoire — mostly bossa nova tunes, plus a few standards — Paul Desmond and Jim Hall rival of grace: their solos are full of twists and turns, they never hurry and they both contribute to create a very relaxed atmosphere.
