Lee Konitz: Alone Together 2LP (Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition)
Blue Note, 1997
In December 1996, as Lee Konitz approached his 70th birthday, the great alto saxophonist brought a unique multi-generational trio with pianist Brad Mehldau (then 26) and bassist Charlie Haden (then 59) into the Jazz Bakery in Los Angeles for an engagement that resulted in this sublime live recording. The 6 standards presented on the album including 'Cherokee,' 'What Is This Thing Called Love?' and ''Round Midnight' were merely jumping-off points for these restlessly creative musicians to go exploring in an uninhibited setting.
A1: Alone Together
B1: The Song Is You
C1: What Is This Thing Called Love?
C2: Round Midnight
D1: You Stepped Out Of A Dream
