the one to get

Normally I hate this kind of thing but the arrangements and the quality of the players on this album make this one of my all time favorites. Usually jazz guys doing rock material is really cheesy and often to hear them try to play something that isn't swing is just sad. This proves it can be done and done well. Don Sebesky did the arranging and Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Jerry Jermott, Airto and Joao Palma among others backed Desmond. I would put it in the "as close to perfect as it gets" catagory.

A fantastic jazz album...

This album is a must have if you're a Paul Desmond fan, and even better if you're a Simon and Garfunkel aficionado. These arrangements are so beautiful. Paul's saxophone on "Old Friends" is worth the $10.00 alone!
