艺人:lee konitz



This is a classic example of Lee Konitz´s approach to improvisation--extremely long, fluid lines, with a keen, insightful, relaxed feeling throughout. Elvin Jones, capable of matching his style to almost any context, is less explosive than you´d expect him to be, but you still hear him weaving over and around and behind the beat at times. It´s interesting to compare this album to Sonny Rollins´ classic 1958 Vanguard recording, also with just Jones and a bassist--we don´t usually think of Rollins and Konitz as occupying the same territory, but these two CD´s sound eerily similar at times.
