Desmond's alto saxophone tone and technique owed nothing to the great alto player of the time, Charlie Parker ; instead his was a clear, light, floating sound and highly melodic playing style.

Then he'd look over to Paul and Paul would take over the melody and they both knew exactly what to play when the other was playing a solo. Jerry Fuller was so understated and inconspicuous he was often overlooked, but the fact is his playing was a big part of the success of the whole gig.
Jerry was a very schooled musician having studied piano and arranging when he was a student at Westlake in Los Angeles. He was also a very good bass player and he knew all the tunes, too. He had a reputation for shouting the chord changes to a bass player who didn't know a tune they were playing and he was always right.
I remember sitting with him on a break one night and a young student drummer came over and asked him what it was like playing with Paul. Jerry thought about it and replied "I try to play everything Paul wants me to play and every now and then I play something I'd like to play.
He always played exactly what the music needed. For me the gig was a most beautiful experience. The music was all very familiar to me and all I had to do was just listen and try to do what the music asked me to do. Paul gave me a solo on every tune whether I wanted it or not and there were many times I was just playing and hoping I didn't mess up what had been up to then, another perfect take. Working on this project with recording engineer Chad Irschick was another amazing experience.
He is the best engineer I've ever worked with and he cares about the music as much as any musician I know.
These recordings offer further proof thai the legacies of jazz musicians extend far beyond their mortal lives. But our conversation resumed, in spite of the accompaniment.
