Sort by: Newest Oldest. You can't miss with Lee Konitz from any period. Mike Tarrani Top Contributor: Drums. All of the albums in this double disc set are winners in my opinion.
Some are difficult to find, but all showcase Konitz' talents, which make this set near essential. The sound quality is very good. Not audiophile quality, but more than good enough for fans who want to dig into Konitz. There is a full orchestra backing Konitz, but there is also a core ensemble that is comprised of Konitz on alto sax, Gene Orloff on violin, Alan Shulman on cello, Lou Stein on piano and Billy Bauer on guitar. In particular, there are moments on this album where Konitz and Bauer are 'in the zone' that, alone, make this album worth owning.
Bill Russo's arrangements and conducting also add a lot to the music. Tracks are: 1. The Daffodil's Smile 3. I Got It Bad 4. What's New 8. Blues For Our Children 9.
Tracks are: You're Driving Me Crazy I Didn't Know About You The More I See You The first seven tracks were recorded for the Storyville label at an unspecified location and date other than Boston presumably Harvard Square in April The final three tracks were also recorded in Boston - again, Harvard Square - in February Here the rhythm section is Percy Heath on bass and Al Levitt on drums.
Tracks: 2. No Splice 3. She's Funny That Way 4. Time On My Hands 5. Foolin' Myself 6. Ronnie's Tune 7. Froggy Day 8. My Old Flame 9. If I Had You Foolin' Myself It features Konitz on alto backed by a superb rhythm section comprised of Ronnie Ball on piano, Peter Ind on bass and Jeff Morton on drums. Tracks 13 and 17 were recorded live at Storyville in Boston on August August 6, , while the remainder of the tracks were recorded in the studio in April and May in New York.

These smaller labels usually are quite unreliable in terms of noise or not, even if the albums are in good condition. It's part of the charm and the old timey feel and soul. God, I love vinyl. The music on this baby is very nice. Mellow and relaxing even in the up-tempo parts.from album ''Lee Konitz -- In Harvard Square'' (Storyville Black Lion CD ) 01 - No Splice 02 - She's Funny That Way 03 - Time On My Ha.
