Lee Konitz's New Quartet puts on a 2012 show in Burghausen, Germany, featuring Florian Weber on piano, Jeff Denson on bass and percussionist Ziv Ravitz. Although familiar with bebop and avant-interventions, Konitz (a Cool Jazzer) is considered one of the few alto saxophonists to retain his own sound at a time when Charlie Parker schooled other players. Part of Music Craft, our regular series featuring rare concert footage from music legends.
