Browsing the web for some audio recordings of Lee Konitz (job-related research!), we found the above undated, amazing photo of Lee with Miles Davis, Bud Powell and Art Blakey at Birdland. Photo by Marcel Fleiss.
Lee Konitz is the elder-statesman on our first WBGO show, The Checkout: Live at 92YTribeca, with composer and pianist Dan Tepfer, on June 22. The Checkout: Live at 92YTribeca is a new series created by Joshua Jackson, host of WBGO’s hour-long music magazine The Checkout.
By the way, here’s video of Lee Konitz and Bill Evans performing “My Melancholy Baby.”
