Lee Konitz
This week Washington DC hosts legendary alto saxophonist Lee Konitz in three different settings at three different venues.

On Wednesday, September 21, Mr. Konitz will join pianist Dan Tepfer and DC-based saxophonist Brad Linde at the University of the District of Columbia. The Felix Grant Jazz Archives presents the first JAZZForum of the season as the trio discusses the life and music of Lee Konitz and his commitment to new challenges and collaborations. This discussion is free and open to the public beginning at 7:00pm.

The Brad Linde Ensemble will premiere a new work composed by Dan Tepfer for Konitz and the nonet at the Mansion at Strathmore on Thursday, September 22 in North Bethesda, Maryland. In addition to the new piece, Konitz and Tepfer will join the ensemble on arrangements by Gil Evans, Gerry Mulligan, Johnny Carisi, and members of the ensemble.

Friday, September 23 finds Lee Konitz in a quintet with Dan Tepfer, Brad Linde, Tom Baldwin, and Tony Martucci for the second installment of “Jazz At the ATLAS" in NE Washington DC. The evening will include improvisations on well-known standards and lines composed by Mr. Konitz.
