Earshot Jazz is proud to present one of the most fluent and distinctive alto saxophonists in jazz history. Lee Konitz is revered in the jazz world for establishing his own unique voice on the alto saxophone while most others were under the huge influence of Charlie Parker. His association with the Cool Jazz movement of the 1950s included participation in Miles Davis’ legendary Birth of the Cool sessions. From his work with Lennie Tristano through an entire career of creative collaborations around the world, Lee Konitz has imbued jazz progression with both dignity and fire.
The legendary Lee Konitz performs one show at the Triple Door with his vibrant new Quartet, comprised of the German pianist Florian Weber and his band mates in the trio Minsarah.
