The veteran German jazz pianist Walter Lang welcomes alto sax great Lee Konitz for this special duo session. While they had worked together on-stage several times, this marks their first CD together. It is a bit unusual to hear Konitz focusing almost exclusively on another musician's material without adding a few of his own quirky reconstructions of standards, but all goes well, as the two players fit hand in glove. The meandering opener, "Monk's Cottage," has a recurring call-and-response theme. "The Good Way" has a classical air, with Konitz making a late entrance in a very lyrical setting.
