Although this duo session by pianist Ben Aronov and bassist Jay Leonhart was recorded in 1982, it wasn't issued for nearly a quarter century afterward. But the performances have stood the test of time, as have the master tapes themselves (which had unstable emulsion but were made usable with great care). This wide-ranging meeting delves from standards to modern jazz classics and enjoyable originals by each musician. They bring a fresh look to standards, with a romp through "Alone Together" and a lush setting of "This Is New" that has a surprisingly tense introduction. Lennie Tristano's challenging twister "April" is also putty for the duo. The dreamy interpretation of Thad Jones' gorgeous "A Child Is Born" is yet another gem. Aronov's playful bop vehicle "Bye" brings Bud Powell to mind, while Leonhart's "Pettiford Brown" is a delightful blues saluting the great bassist Oscar Pettiford. Highly recommended!
