although this was shared on dime back in feb 2019, it looks as if les légendes du jazz on france musique has aired it again just last month,  describing it as a double tribute to shelly manne on the centenary of his birth and to lee konitz who died from coronavirus on april 15.  not much more that i can add to that.
