A good Lee Konitz recording will resonate for hours. The notes wind, color moods, and create environments weaving in an afterglow leading to the footsteps of your dreams. His most appropriately named STEPS TOWARD A DREAM is as alluring as it is hard to find. Lee Konitz is best when in conversation with one or two other instruments as his voice demands extensive reciting ideally captured on DUETS. Konitz with his wandering, moaning, bending and curving, non - offensive exploration is a delight. Different points of entry create intriguing duets even in the company of a quartet (IDEAL SCENE). Like a couple of friends starting a conversation with others joining, dropping out, rejoining, and adding their own points to a flurry of highlights and bright moments. Konitz is the best at holding these talks. An expert who is so fluid, Konitz plays like water flowing, streaming, searching and finding its larger ocean. Konitz goes inside the music- challenging listener and artist alike. Lee Konitz makes the avant-garde an accessible standard music and the standard far from expected.
