Jazz Nocture was recorded in 1992 for the Japanese Venus label, and features Lee Konitz on alto sax with Kenny Barron (piano), James Genus (bass) and Kenny Washington (drums).
There are no phony disguises of familiar tunes with new titles on this date; just creative blowing. Konitz uplifts such often-overplayed material as 'You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To,' 'Misty,' 'Alone Together,' 'Body and Soul' and 'My Funny Valentine' without ever becoming predictable; Kenny Barron is in excellent form, too... recommended as a strong example of Lee Konitz's playing in the '90s.
