I have won several prizes as the world’s slowest alto player, as well as a special award in 1961 for quietness.
—Paul Desmond.
Highly regarded in the West Coast’s “cool jazz” scene, the self effacing Paul Desmond was the alto player in the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
In 1964, following the lead of Stan Getz, he made this really cool album in the Bossa Nova style.
This CD reissue has bonus tracks

Paul Desmond- alto
Jim Hall- guitar
Eugene Wright- bass (Gene Cherico on track 9)
Connie Kay – drums.
