All the Things You Are
by Dave Brubeck

You are the promised kiss of springtime
That makes the lonely winter seem long
You are the breathless hush of evening
That trembles on the brink of a lovely song

You are the angel glow that lights a star
The dearest things I know are what you are

Some day my happy arms will hold you
And some day I'll know that moment divine

When all the things you are, are mine

You are the angel glow that lights a star
The dearest things I know are what you are

Some day my happy arms will hold you
And some day I'll know that moment divine
When all the things you are, are mine

The coolest thing about Paul Desmond's playing (besides his tone, which is often flute-like!) is that he uses this concept: he will take a short idea or motif, and then repeat it, keeping the rhythm the same, but changing the notes to fit the new chords of the tune as they arise. One of the ways that this concept can be used is to create tension that is finally released when the soloist stops using that motif (tho this is not what Desmond does here--he creates a momentary tension, but then steps back into his flow of ideas).

You can also hear this "repeated motif" concept at 1:24 to 1:38, and quite prominently at 1:54 to 2:03, as he twists and turns that motif. Once you know what this concept sounds like, you will be hearing it in lots of his solos. Happy hunting!

Thank's for the Explain.

Dude thank you for explaining this and I'm not a musician in any sense..absolutely no knowledge but I have a deep love and appreciation for jazz as I equate to the visual art which I am a practitioner of..and though I've heard Desmond a million times before and LOVE his soloing I never knew this. I think I kind of understand because that repetition thing and release you talk about was always a cool thing that I sort of liked but never really was aware of it until now!

That concept is called a sequence.

Mulligan is really respectful waiting a bar or two to come in after Desmond's solo.

Peter Straub

This has to be one of the greatest Paul Desmond solos of all time--he starts swinging harder and harder, he plays louder, with real aggression but also real joy. And Ilove Brubeck's perfect comping behind him.

Alan Dawson on drums.  Desmond's playing was like gold pouring from a cup.
