Summertime

Very smart clean vinyl and gloss flipback cover.

Summertime is an album by American jazz saxophonist Paul Desmond featuring performances recorded in 1968 and released on the CTI label.[2][3][4]

Allmusic reviewer Richard S. Ginell states "The result is a beautifully produced, eclectic album of music that revives Desmond's "bossa antigua" idea and sends it in different directions, directly toward Brazil and various Caribbean regions, as well as back to the jazzy States... Never before had Desmond's alto been recorded so ravishingly".[5]
