    This follow up to an earlier CD (Alone Together) with Brad Mehldau and Charlie Haden took place exactly one year later at the same venue, L.A.'s Jazz Bakery. Like the first release, the trio takes their time exploring each tune, whether it's the leader's opening blues or a favorite ballad like "What's New" or "Body and Soul." This stimulating set is highly recommended! ~ Ken Dryden

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (12/24/99, p.153) - Included in EW's "Best of Jazz Albums 1999" - "...For sheer improvisation, few...come close to this live recording from 1996....simply devastating."
    CMJ (11/8/99, p.3) - "...each player quickly digests the melodies and uses them to fuel surprising and lengthy improvisational excursions in lushness....This beautiful, downright sublime work is straight-ahead jazz in its purest form."
    JazzTimes (1-2/00, pp.133,136) - "Collectors of Lee Konitz...will be pleased with this release....Lee continues to remind us of the beauty of his sound and the flowing nature of his lyrical sense..."
