This is a wonderful example of Lee Konitz's unique style. His lines sometimes seem not quite right, going off in the wrong key or direction but then, all of a sudden, they seem to turn around and come out just as they should be somehow. His solo track on this album, "Nothin'", is full of such delicious surprises and everything seems to stand still for an instant. Alan Broadbent is the perfect partner, somehow mirroring Konitz's beautiful meandering and twisting lines and also reminiscent of Brad Mehldau's playing with Konitz. His playing on "You Go To My Head" (his solo track) is wonderfully inventive with that weird Tristano-like walking bass line. This further shows how much Konitz enjoys and relishes the duet setting. A great album that sounds really spontaneous; at times the music twists and turns in all directions at once. Highly recommended.

It's a bit hard to put a finger on why this one (& its companion _Live-Lee_) leave me cold--after all, I'm a big fan of Konitz's & also of Alan Broadbent. But it does seem a curiously "neutral" album--neither intense nor relaxed, delicate but not exactly pretty, rather impassive & mannered. Konitz is often said to be a cliche-free player (including in the liner notes here) but he does seem unduly inclined to chew over the same notes & use the same pet phrases (circling around notes like slowed-down bebop tags). & though Lee sometimes can be a fierce or cussed player, or alternately can have a great sense of humour (sample some of the wacky "vocal" tracks on albums like _The Sound of Surprise_), the music here just seems self-sufficient & self-involved. The always wonderful pianist Alan Broadbent sounds fine here, of course, but even he sounds a bit dried out--& I'm not sure that his decision to use Tristano-style walking-bass in the left hand was the right one: he does it so unemphatically (rarely bothering to accent the offbeats) that it kills any sense of swing. (Tristano used to play such lines hard & deliberately--I'm not sure that that exactly swung either but it did give the music a real intensity.) I like some of the tracks on this disc--"Invitation", "Thingin'" & "Just Friends", primarily--but the ballads can be terribly papery: this has got to be one of the most emotionally flat versions of "Body & Soul" I've ever heard. There's plenty to admire here--Konitz, like Steve Lacy or Evan Parker (two other purist's-purist musicians), is rarely capable of a less-than-excellent performance--, but it's not exactly a fun album; unless you're already a big fan of Konitz's work I'd suggest approaching this disc with some caution.
