Paul Desmond with Jim HallDesmond Blue/Take Ten ... CD
RCA/Collectables, 1962/1963. Used ... $6.99
Two cool jazz classics from altoist Paul Desmond and guitarist Jim Hall! The records were recorded under Desmond's name, but Hall's the guitarist on both sides, and his playing lends an indescribably wonderful edge to both records. Desmond Blue features the pair with larger string backings by Bob Prince, which create a dreamy pillow for alto and guitar to solo across. Titles include the Desmond originals "Late Lament" and "Desmond Blue" – plus "Ill Wind", "My Funny Valentine", and "Like Someone In Love". Take Ten features more Desmond originals – "Take Ten", "El Prince", and "Embarcadero – and begins to lean a bit towards a bossa groove, laid out nicely by the drums and bass behind Desmond and Hall. Other tracks include "Samba De Orfeu", "Theme From Black Orpheus", and "The One I Love". CD

✨✧ Paul DesmondDesmond Blue ... LP
RCA, 1962. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A cool jazz classic from altoist Paul Desmond and guitarist Jim Hall! The album was recorded under Desmond's name, but Hall's the guitarist throughout, and his playing lends an indescribably wonderful edge to the set, making the album a real team effort!

Titles include the Desmond originals "Late Lament" and "Desmond Blue" – plus "Ill Wind", "My Funny Valentine", and "Like Someone In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul DesmondSkylark ... LP
CTI, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
A stunning 70s set from the great Paul Desmond – one that has the tremendous alto player finding an even fresher groove than before – yet all without losing any of the class and control that made him so great in the 50s and 60s! Don Sebesky arranged the set, but most of the instrumentation is nice and lean – small group modes that allow Paul's alto to soar out in the lead, often alongside some excellent guitar work from Gabor Szabo and Gene Bertoncini – the latter of whom provides accompaniment that takes us back to some of Jim Hall's music with Desmond. Bob James plays a bit of piano on the record, and rhythm is by Ron Carter on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – plus a bit of cello from George Ricci, who shades tunes in with a mighty nice sound. But as you'd guess, the main focus is on Desmond's sublime alto sax – on titles that include "Was A Sunny Day", "Take Ten", "Music For A While", and of course, "Skylark". LP, Vinyl record album

Jim HallConcierto ... CD
CTI (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
One of Jim Hall's most compelling albums from the 70s – a mix of lightly swinging tunes and more complicated numbers, recorded with some of his best partners from earlier years! Chet Baker is on trumpet, Paul Desmond is on alto sax – and the rest of the group includes Ron Carter bass, Roland Hanna piano, and Steve Gadd on drums. Hall's style is as airy and free-floating as ever – and the spacious arrangements on the album by Don Sebesky only support his work even more. The centerpiece of the album is the 19 minute long "Concierto De Aranjuez", and other tracks include "The Answer Is Yes", "Two's Blues", and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To". CD
Also available Concierto ... LP 19.99
