Lee Konitz and Brian Dickinson

Released: April 5, 2005 Label: Philology

Lee Konitz arrived in Toronto in the spring of 2005 for a concert and television show taping, setting up the opportunity for a studio recording session with veteran Canadian pianist Brian Dickinson. The cool-toned alto saxophonist responds to Dickinson’s swinging accompaniment, delving into a number of standards and memorable jazz compositions, highlighted by the interpretations of “Invitation” and the rhapsodic setting of “If You Could See Me Now.”
