The opening number, "Take Ten" in 5/4 time is just as good, if not better than the famous hit he recorded with Brubeck, "Take Five." Besides this tune, Desmond composed two others on this album:"El Prince"& "Embarcadero." These are not the only tunes he plays in the Latin vein. There's also "Theme From Black Orpheus" & "Samba de Orpheu." Desmond has a definite bent towards Brazilian music, as we have seen on the CD "Bossa Antigua." He is very ably backed up by the great Jim Hall on guitar, one of the most creative jazz guitarists around. Gene Cherico, Eugene Wright, & George Duvivier share the bass duties, with Connie Kay on drums. The music is simply wonderful, & as an added attraction, the liner notes were written by Desmond himself. If this man had not been a jazz musician, he could very easily have made a living as a writer. The music on this album is simply wonderful; Desmond never seems to be at a loss for his melodious solo work. Get this one. You'll be glad you did.

By Paul P. Alisauskas on June 2 2011

My bias: I LOVE Paul Desmond's playing AND almost everything I've ever heard by Jim Hall. So, this recording starts with a terrific head start. It doesn't disappoint.

The languid, tuneful and lyrical playing of both the principals (and this could easily have been labeled a 'Desmond/Hall' recording) is faultless. Plus, they play off each other like cats and nip. The range of material is first rate.

I don't think you have to be a fan of "cool" or the "West Coast" school to get into this, but be forewarned: This is the epitome of SMOOTH (not in the sense of that insipid pop-jazz nonsense). Elegant. Literate. Sophisticated. Exactly like Desmond himself.

For more fun, read Desmond's own liner notes. It's a pity he didn't write (prose) more. His original tunes on this recording make up for that, though.

For anyone just trying to get a taste of P.D.'s phenomenal melodic soloing ability, this would be a wonderful start.

This is a response to the Sept., 2003 review by wsmorrell from Boise,
Idaho. While I agree that this is a great record and that Desmond is one
among the pantheon of jazz immortals, I strongly disagree with Morrell's
opinion of Stan Getz. Getz's creativity, sense of melody and smooth tone
made him the ideal American ambassador for Brazilian Bossa Nova.
Getz was a versatile genius and Bossa Nova was only one among many
jazz styles that he mastered. While Desmond and other jazz giants did
a wonderful job interpreting Bossa Nova, Getz remains unsurpassed in
my opinion. In conclusion, how could any real jazz fan say that Getz's
playing is clunky and heavy handed? I have never seen those words
used to describe his playing anywhere else. That ought to tell you
something.
