Paul Desmond Take Ten on Numbered Limited Edition 180g LP from ORG Music

Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Bernie Grundman and Pressed at Pallas

Limited Edition of 1500 Numbered Copies

When Paul Desmond wanted to create a sequel to the touchstone jazz number “Take Five,” he did just that with the appropriately titled "Take Ten." The title tune from this 1963 recording is a reworking of the classic "Take Five" theme in 10/8 time. Certainly this should be taken as a hint that it was not Dave Brubeck but Desmond who was the composer of the best selling jazz single of all time. 

Paul Desmond and Jim Hall’s collaboration on this quartet project stands as one of the finest recordings either ever produced. Each artist is allowed plenty of breathing room on their respective instrument with their counterpart offering a touch or a texture here and there as the perfect complement. The atmosphere here is rich and relaxed, and this conveys itself to the listener in spades even after half a century.

Now Paul Desmond's Take Ten finally gets the audiophile treatment it deserves, with this 180 gram vinyl reissue mastered from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman. Each copy of this limited edition release is numbered with a gold foil stamp.

Paul Desmond (alto saxophone)
