Label: A&M Records
OK, on the surface this CD is kind of lame: cool alto sax master Paul Desmond plays the Simon & Garfunkel songbook as an orchestra swells behind him. Here's the thing though -- Desmond was a lyrical improvisatory genius, the S&G songs are surprisingly well-suited to jazz and even Don Sebesky's lush charts are tolerable. Desmond bouncing along with Herbie Hancock and Ron Carter on "Feelin' Groovy" is the set's clear highlight.
