While I could list myriad reasons why I love Paul Desmond, I’ll stick with two for now:

•His music relaxes me
•His music inspires me

This combination is pretty potent when you’re trying to get things done. A calm and inspired mind is a productive and creative mind.

His legacy is somewhat overshadowed by his alto contributions to Dave Brubeck’s legendary recordings. While I do respect those recordings, I have an emotional connection to all of Desmond’s solo work.
