Il y a toujours eu un "malentendu Paul Desmond". Voici en effet un saxophoniste qui joua longtemps dans l'ombre de la formation de Dave Brubeck, lui-même pianiste controversé (à tort). Or ce Take Ten de 1963 nous prouve, à l'instar de Easy Living ou de Bossa Antigua, qu'il possédait un jeu merveilleux, à rapprocher de celui de Stan Getz ou de Phil Woods. Les thèmes ("Take Ten", "Embarcadero", "Samba de Orfeu"…) sont magnifiques, et ses partenaires (Jim Hall ou Connie Kay en particulier) sont exemplaires. --Eric Frank --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.
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
