This thesis examines the improvised saxophone solos of Paul Desmond (1924- 1977) on the classic album Time Out (recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1959) with the purpose of delineating their contribution to the musical whole in terms of melodic, harmonic, rhythmic, timbral, and dynamic, and formal elements.
