Bossa Antigua
Used - LP - LSP 3320
Beautiful 1965 Deep Groove Stereo Original Still In Shrink Wrap. Features Jim Hall. “Bossa Antigua Picks Up The Samba-Based Rim Shots Of Drummer Connie Kay On Take Ten And Tries To Make A Whole New Record Out Of Them. While The Title Track Duplicates The Original Percolating Groove Of "El Prince," Other Tracks Like "Samba Cantina" Revert To A Typical Bossa Nova Rhythm Of The Period, Which Leads One To Conclude That "Bossa Antigua" Is Merely Whatever Desmond Says It Is. Of The Album's Two Non-Originals, "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes," Of Course, Is Made-To-Order For Desmond's Wistful, Sophisticated Temperament, And He Delivers Exactly What A Desmond Devotee Would Expect And Love; And "A Ship Without A Sail" Has Some Memorable Off-The-Cuff Solo Ideas. Jim Hall Is Around Again To Lend Subtle Rhythm Support And Low-Key Savvy In His Solos, And Like Many Desmond Companions Of This Period, He Makes A Fine Sparring Partner In The Contrapuntal Exchanges. The Brubeck Quartet's Gene Wright Again Lends A Sturdy Hand On Bass. The Playing Is Wonderful Throughout.” Richard S. Ginell, All Music. more

Take Ten
Used - LP - LSP 2569
Beautiful 1963 Deep Groove Stereo Original. Features Jim Hall, Gene Cherico And Connie Kay. “Now Listeners Enter The Heart Of The Paul Desmond/Jim Hall Sessions, A Great Quartet Date With Gene Cherico Manning The Bass (Gene Wright Deputizes On The Title Track) And MJQ Drummer Connie Kay Displaying Other Sides Of His Personality. Everyone Wanted Desmond To Come Up With A Sequel To The Monster Hit "Take Five"; And So He Did, Reworking The Tune And Playfully Designating The Meter As 10/8. Hence "Take Ten," A Worthy Sequel With A Solo That Has A Middle-Eastern Feeling Akin To Desmond's Famous Extemporaneous Excursion With Brubeck In "Le Souk" Back In 1954. It Was Here That Desmond Also Unveiled A Spin-Off Of The Then-Red-Hot Bossa Nova Groove That He Called "Bossa Antigua" (A Sardonic Play-On-Words Meaning "Old Thing"), Which Laid The Ground For Desmond's Next Album And A Few More Later In The Decade. Two Of The Best Examples Are His Own Tunes, The Samba-Like "El Prince" (Named After Arranger Bob Prince), An Infectious Number With On-The-Wing Solo Flights That You Can't Get Out Of Your Head, And The Haunting "Embarcadero." Hall Now Gets Plenty Of Room To Stretch Out, Supported By Kay's Gently Dropped Bombs, And He Is The Perfect Understated Swinging Foil For The Wistful Altoist. There Is Not A Single Track Here That Isn't Loaded With Ingeniously Worked Out, Always Melodic Ideas.” Richard S. Ginell, AMG. more
