This Verve CD (and its predecessor from the same gigs, Heroes) contains duos featuring Lee Konitz on alto and soprano and pianist Gil Evans. Actually the music is rather disappointing for, although Konitz plays fairly well on the mixture of standards and obscurities, Evans often wanders and his backing of the saxophonist is sparse and erratic. The results are more important historically than musically.
