If only more jazz documentaries were as good as Montrealer 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 (who strums piano strings, autoharp style, on 'Struttin' With Some Barbecue.'
