In A Mellow Tone

In A Mellow Tone
Wednesday January 2nd, 2019 with Jim Reil
Cool Jazz Master Paul Desmond

This week we’ll survey recordings from 1953 to 1963 led by alto sax player Paul Desmond, whose cool, precise tone was the ideal foil for the boisterous piano of Dave Brubeck in the Dave Brubeck Quartet. Desmond is inventive and distinctive in every kind of setting.
