Legendary alto saxophonist Lee Konitz has been at the forefront of modern jazz for over 50 years. Since coming to prominence in the 40s and 50s with orchestras led by Claude Thornhill and Stan Kenton and smaller ensembles directed by Lennie Tristano and Miles Davis (Birth of the Cool), he’s remained on the cutting edge of post-bop improvisation. Elvin Jones, Jim Hall, Joe Henderson, and Charlie Haden lead a long list of his collaborators. Recently, Lee has partnered with young award-winning Brooklyn- based pianist Dan Tepfer for a series of improvised musical conversations. Tepfer was voted Rising Star in DownBeat in 2011, the year he released Goldberg Variations/Variations in which he improvised on J.S.Bach’s masterpiece.
