Not only did I grow up on it---I played it, and wrote my own arrangements for combos and big bands. And if I were not playing on Saturday nights, I was in the Big Apple, making the rounds to all the jazz clubs. That was the best way to learn jazz. I was lucky enough to have seen/heard Brubeck/Desmond/Morello many times.

You are welcome guy's,

my mom and dad always listened to Jazz during "quiet hour" hi-ball time. Even though it's a little behind my generation, the music is timeless and I love it.

Great song

One of the all-time best jazz pieces ever written. Brubeck's a genius, and Paul Desmond is, in my opinion, the best alto man who ever lived. His tone and purity are unmatched.

of Desmond. However, if you like his sound and conceptualization, you need to listen to Lee Konitz. To me, it sounds like Desmond and Konitz were born under the same stars, at the same time, and managed somehow to acquire the same DNA.
