Here is an excellent Konitz album, particularly because of the presence of Elvin Jones. Konitz has always been a very inventive player, and the driving percussion of Jones (although less than his playing at the time with Coltrane) adds significant energy to the whole thing. An excellent example of how Konitz, often thought of as a "cool" or intellectualized player, creates jazz of great intensity without resorting to honking or anything other than musical and rhythmic invention. It can be enjoyed for its beauty alone, or one can dive deeply into how Konitz reworks the overall shapes of standard tunes. It takes a very present mind to play this way, and this album is an excellent demonstration of Konitz's skills.
