By David Conklin on June 1, 2007
Format: Audio CD
This surely must be one of the most unique and varied jazz albums ever recorded. Lee Konitz--a master of improvisation who epitomizes the "West Coast Cool" sound on alto sax --duos with 9 different folks (including Joe Henderson, Jim Hall, Ray Nance, and Elvin Jones) on several different instruments. There's also a quartet piece and a great finale where almost everyone joins in. Styles vary, and while the music leans toward the avant-garde, it should be fairly accessible to most listeners. Presumably everything here was recorded in one 5-hour session to maximize spontaneity and intensity. This was a very impressive achievement by Konitz, and is a lot of fun to boot. I hope this eventually gets a good re-mastering: the OJC series sounds fine as far as first generation CDs go, but a 20 or 24-Bit job by skilled engineers might work wonders on this.

Classic Konitz with a wonderfully diverse collection of musicians. I usually avoid these type of many musician recordings, but this one is better than good. You'll discover a bunch of unknown or under appreciated musicians and more famous ones doing a good bit of stretching to keep up with the master. Konitz at his challenging best. He does about everything well, different styles, tempos, instrumental combinations, etc. - talk about versatility !!!
