This is for Paul Desmond and is a piece from "I REMEMBER". He was born in San Francisco, 11/25/24 and died in NYC 5/30/77. Paul was the personification of the cultured artist, like Benny Carter he was well-read, wrote wonderful essays, told great stories, sketched a bit, loved good wine and food and adored beautiful women. His dream was to achieve an alto sound like a dry martini. He made it. Never spilled or wasted a drop! One of my heroes.
