This very spontaneous LP (altoist Lee Konitz had never played before in a trio with bassist Sonny Dallas and drummer Elvin Jones) is quite successful and enjoyable. Konitz and his trio perform five familiar standards, stretching out on such tunes as "I Remember You," "All of Me" and "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To." The music is searching but melodic, exploratory yet accessible. This is one of Konitz's better albums from the era and is long overdue to be reissued on CD.
Practice, practice, practice
This is a sweet meandering session. Perfect for people who really like dinner jazz but want to see what might be lying on the other side.
Konitz, a student in his youth of the improvisation master Lennie Tristano exhibits almost incomprehensible technique and improvisation Accompanied by the incomparable drummer Elvin Jones, this is extraordinarily intelligent, innovative music theory in practice. His expression of the standard You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To is the most compelling most creative version I have ever heard and I have heard them all. This is music to listen to mindfully and marvel at the energy and art. Well recognized as one of Konitz's finest albums.
