If only more jazz documentaries were as good as Robert Daudelin's 1988 Lee Konitz: Portrait of the Artist as a Saxophonist.

Devoid of narration, this film lets the altoist reveal himself in conversation, in duets with pianist Harold Danko and in a workshop with students.

Konitz talks of the lasting impact study with Lennie Tristano made on his music. Konitz is a man obsessed with line and rhythm, insisting on the importance of playing melodies straight, and singing old Louis Armstrong solos in unison with Danko.
