5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderlee 2 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A quite stunning collection on 4 CDs covering the period 1947 to 1955. For a very modest outlay you will get some 66 tracks running for just over 4 hours. Being Lee Konitz, who always had his favourites, there is some duplication of titles but said duplicates come from different sessions. The sound quality is first rate and the tracks appear in strict date order. There is a nice symmetry to the collection in that it starts and finshes with Konitz playing with Lennie Tristano. There are some errors and omissions which I will try to identify.
CD 1.
This is very much Tristano territory and he is on the first 15 tracks. The recording date for the first 4 is given as August 1947 but I am sure it should read 1949 in line with all the other tracks on this disc. Two tracks from the May 1949 session "Intuition" and Disgression" are probably the first examples of free improvisation. Some of the interplay between Konitz and Warne Marsh is magnificent. On tracks 16 to 18 Sal Mosca is the pianist and the uncredited bass player is Arnold Fishkin.
CD 2.
This kicks off with another track from 1949 with Fishkin again uncredited.
We then move forward 12 months to find Konitz with various small groups through tracks 2 to 5. Eleven months later Konitz is in the studio with a group that includes Miles Davis and Max Roach. Of particlur interest are the two tunes penned by George Russell, "Odjenar" and Ezz-Thetic" which, to say the least, are very advanced for the time. tracks 10 and 11 are delightful duos with Billy Bauer on guitar. The remaining 8 tracks are from the well known session with the Gerry Mulligan Quartet. Some of these were recorded live and all are gems.
CD 3.
