For the album by Paul Desmond, see Glad to Be Unhappy (album). Glad to Be Unhappy" is a popular song composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Lorenz Hart. It was introduced in their 1936 musical On Your Toes by Doris Carson and David Morris, although it was not popular at the time, as there was only one 1936 recording of the tune. In the 1937 London production, it was sung by Gina Malo and Eddie Pola.

Even though Desmond was kidding when he described himself as the world's slowest alto player, this record bears out the kernel of truth within the jest. Here, Desmond set out to make a record of love songs and torch ballads, so the tempos are very slow to medium, the mood is of wistful relaxation, and the spaces between the notes grow longer. At first glance, Desmond may seem only peripherally involved with the music-making, keeping emotion at a cool, intellectual arms' length, yet his exceptionally pure tone and ruminative moods wear very well over the long haul.

Glad To Be Unhappy is a cool jazz music album recording by PAUL DESMOND released in 1965 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette. Kay, Wright and Cherico (appearing once) don’t take any chances in the rhythm section but ‘Glad to Be Unhappy’ is a showcase for the leaders, so long as you’re happy with that and already like Paul Desmond or Jim Hall, this album is probably worth getting a hold of.
