Lee Konitz at The ArtsCenter
Legendary saxophonist and 2009 NEA Jazz Master Lee Konitz brings his quartet to The ArtsCenter for a rare North Carolina appearance. Since defining the “West Coast Cool” sound in his work with Miles Davis, Lennie Tristano, and Stan Kenton, Lee Konitz has spent more than a half-century refining his interpretations of the Great American Songbook. At 90 years old, he remains one of the most original and innovative voices in jazz, making this show a must-see for anyone invested in the past, present, and future of the art of jazz improvisation.
