1965 Deep Groove Stereo Original. Appears Unplayed. Paul Desmond, Alto Sax; Jim Hall, Guitar; Gene Wright, Bass; Connie Kay, Drums. “Bossa Antigua Picks Up The Samba-Based Rim Shots Of Drummer Connie Kay On Take Ten And Tries To Make A Whole New Record Out Of Them. While The Title Track Duplicates The Original Percolating Groove Of "El Prince," Other Tracks Like "Samba Cantina" Revert To A Typical Bossa Nova Rhythm Of The Period, Which Leads One To Conclude That "Bossa Antigua" Is Merely Whatever Desmond Says It Is. Of The Album's Two Non-Originals, "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes," Of Course, Is Made-To-Order For Desmond's Wistful, Sophisticated Temperament, And He Delivers Exactly What A Desmond Devotee Would Expect And Love; And "A Ship Without A Sail" Has Some Memorable Off-The-Cuff Solo Ideas. Jim Hall Is Around Again To Lend Subtle Rhythm Support And Low-Key Savvy In His Solos, And Like Many Desmond Companions Of This Period, He Makes A Fine Sparring Partner In The Contrapuntal Exchanges. The Brubeck Quartet's Gene Wright Again Lends A Sturdy Hand On Bass. The Playing Is Wonderful Throughout.” Richard S. Ginell, All Music.
