His sax is described as sounding like a "dry martini." Desmond has a tone like no other. Stan Getz has a wonderful tone, but I prefer Desmond's. All his work is stellar and I hope many young players will follow in his path.

Stan did not play alto, how can u compare them? any sax playr has a distinct tone, especially legends.

I heard take five and was like "this is awesome" then I went to search and saw take ten and was like "There's a sequel?!?" Nice!

Shades of Take Five. Paul D. had a very unconventional style, full of imagination and his own approach. Using an oriental pentatonic scale I think - Arabic-Asian.

MARCELLO MENTA SIMONSEN NICO

If you read the liner notes to "The Paul Desmond Quartet", a 1975 album, you'll know that the group that played in this particular album dubbed "Take Five" as "The Camel", because of the obvious oriental vein that Paul infused to his old classic in in that recording. Since "Take Ten" is simply a disguised "Take Five", the Mid- Eastern touch makes a lot of sense here.

@RivieraByBuick Incorrect. Desmond was the sole composer. The Dave Brubeck Quartet recorded it and made it it famous.

@Khalimba Music along with Dave Brubeck 50/50

Paul Desmond actually composed take five so...

I hear a half-step/whole-step move on multiple minor scales rather than modalities.
