The album from which Take Five comes, Time Out, is one of the absolute classics of bebop easily measuring up to all of those more acclaimed recordings from the same era (Love Supreme, Kind of Blue, Ah..Um, Blue Train, Sidewinder, Somethin' else, Brilliant Corners...I have to get my listing reflex under control).

Blue Rondo a la Turk is also on Time Out and is another one of the best things ever recorded.



Paul Desmond is one of the most technically brilliant and neglected of jazz saxophonists (how does he make it sound so smokey???). I guess maybe because he looks like Eric Morecambe's and Phil Silvers' missing brother?? Also his solo stuff is not so inspired which I guess goes to show what a great bandleader and arranger Brubeck was - after all his signature track is known not so much for his own keyboards as for Desmond's sax..

And Hugh Cornwell and Jean Jacques Brunel, aren't you still ashamed??

Oh and DB was an absolute diamond geezer also, married for 70+ years to the same woman, civil rights activist, donated money to lots of good civic causes...

One of Paul Desmond's finest, up there with Cannonball's Autumn Leaves and Art Pepper's You'd be so nice to come home to.

I love Autumn Leaves, almost good enough to be 'Trane!
