Reissue and fresh master of saxophonist Lee Konitz, pianist Don Friedman and guitarist Attila Zoller's great 1995 Hat release, original compositions of live melodic interplay.
Konitz, Lee, Don Friedman & Attila Zoller
Released in: Switzerland
"Konitz, Zoller and Friedman play as one here. Indeed, they do seem to share similar musical backgrounds and values-Konitz and Friedman's playing is marked by Lennie Tristano-and have worked together previously.
Here these three musicians perform live and seem very relaxed. They play the standard "Alone Together" and improvise on the "All the Things You Are" chord progression during "Thingin." It's a pleasure to hear them work. Not only have they all been around for a while, they've learned a lot. Their playing is almost cliche-free, and their contrapuntal work hangs together quite well. Friedman, on "Images," and Zoller, On "Cloisterbells," play unaccompanied, and are masterful; they never run out of ideas and their playing is always coherent.In other words, the group puts on a clinic."-Harvey Pekar
