3.0 out of 5 stars Mellow ballad sessions by legendary sax master April 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Recorded in June 1950 and April 1952 in Paris, and, as the title might lead you to believe, these sessions find Byas soloing melodically on mid-tempo ballads. With only one upbeat blues jam, the set list is on the mellow side. There's little display of the advanced swing stylings that he's most well-known for, though it's a subtly pleasant listen.

Don Byas Sax (Tenor)

Art Simmons Piano

Maurice Vander Piano

Jean-Pierre Sasson Guitar

Joe Benjamin Double Bass

Roger Grasset Double Bass

Benny Bennett Drums

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite ballad playing October 4, 2008
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
While a masterful player of hard bop and swing, this album mainly shows off Byas' artistry as a ballad player - perhaps without equal among tenor players. Every piece here is a gem.

Definitely puts me in a Paris state of mind. Lovely music from a great jazz man. This is a keeper and I cannot wait to get it on vinyl for a beautiful musical experience.

Good bands, great Byas saxophone. The ballad master at work - warm, romantic, and elegant. Overall, seems lik a Byas portrait of Paris - sweet release.
