Lee Konitz/Martial Solal - Live Frankfurt 2008

Reading the comments about Konitz in the Murray post I thought this might be quite timely. These two guys have played in duo and quartet formats on countless occasions over the last 40 years, and it's good to see the partnership still going strong as both of them are now turned 80. The setlist contains tunes they've played many times before, but still manage to give a fresh and original twist to them.

Lee Konitz (as), Martial Solal (p).
"Alte Oper", Frankfurt/Main (Germany), September 5, 2008.
1 The Song Is You
2 What Is This Thing Called Love
3 Body And Soul
4 Solar
5 Stella By Starlight
6 Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise

This has been recorded from a digital broadcast (thanks to "hamhen") at 256kbps and is posted in MP2 format.
