Pairing alto saxophonist Lee Konitz with pianist Hal Galper makes for plenty of inspired moments in this 1975 studio date. Starting with an inventive reshaping of "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You," which transforms this swing era favorite into a driving bop vehicle, both Konitz and Galper listen intensely to one another and react intuitively, as if they had been playing together for a long while. Galper's lively backing pushes Konitz into some wild changes on this familiar work. "Sweet and Lovely" has a Monk-like humor to it, while "Stella by Starlight" strays far from its roots as the leader offers a stunning unaccompanied introduction. Each artist has a solo feature: Galper's "Villainesque" is an enchanting modal masterpiece, while Konitz's "Soliloquy" sounds like a complex variation of the chord changes of the standard "All the Things You Are."
