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 Desmond and Hall. The participation of the great MJQ bass and drum tandem of Percy Heath and Connie Kay keep things swinging in epic fashion.

Desmond was once quoted as saying: "The ideal for me, is a group with a lot of cooperative playing going on, as opposed to the procession of virtuosi, if that's the word I want. Guys who can improve together in such a way that the whole turns out to be greater than the sum of all the parts." That is definitely the case here.

This CD comes with a very special OUTER CARD SLEEVE and great design.
