Joe Lovano, tenor saxophonist, is deeply merged into tradition but also adds his own sound and versatility, Hank Jones goes from swing to bop, his two-handed playing becomes the entire rhythm section, the two giants join George Mraz on bass and Lewis Nash on drums. Here they are playing at JazzBaltica Festival in 2005.
