Album Review

This excellent CD gives one a definitive look at altoist Lee Konitz at a period of time when he was breaking away from being a sideman and a student of Lennie Tristano and asserting himself as a leader. With pianist Ronnie Ball, bassist Percy Heath and drummer Alan Levitt, Konitz explores a variety of his favorite chord changes, some of which were disguised by newer melodies such as "Hi Beck," "Subconscious Lee" and "Sound Lee." Among the other highpoints of this well-recorded set are "Foolin' Myself" and a lengthy exploration of "If I Had You."

Art Pepper, John Coltrane and this insanely talented artist.

This is some of the best of all jazz.

He began studying with Lennie Tristano, who...
