High-definition premium 180gm vinyl pressing of this classic Jazz album. Two of the most lyrical of all the great jazzmen, the September 5-7, 1959, First Place Again sessions mark the first recorded collaboration between the superlative alto saxophonist Paul Desmond and guitar giant Jim Hall. The participation of the great MJQ bass and drum tandem of Percy Heath and Connie Kay keep things swinging in epic fashion. While the brilliance of each musician is evident throughout all eight tracks, these sessions showcase the band's capacity to create a lyrical, elegant, and always swinging collective sound. Wax Time Records. 2010.
