Part Two of a magical, unmissable encounter, this work is a magnificent mosaic of breathtaking sound textures and superimposed orchestral effects. The group dynamic resembles a series of short studies assembled around the framework of one spacious, ethereal sound environment. A tale is told… Throughout the album's nine pieces, as each performer takes his place logically and naturally in an inspired exchange of voices, improvised storylines arise, free of clichés or needless repetition.

Lee Konitz has always been a tireless explorer, constantly inventing and reinventing melodic lines. Here once again he joins with François Théberge as the Quebecois saxman continues his luminous exploration of the jazz master's music, begun in 2002 with the album "Music of Konitz". This time around, we are treated to a veritable conversation between the two men. A year and a half's worth of writing and arranging reveals the full measure of Konitz's genius in his astonishing solos. Théberge's rich creativity and playfulness are also in abundance, as he unmasks his inner self to create, assemble, refashion, construct and deconstruct music which breathes deeply, naturally, and effortlessly.
