It’s short notice but…
Legendary saxophonist Lee Konitz – whose career has included work with Miles Davis and Lennie Tristano – performs tonight in a rare, intimate duo setting with pianist Dan Tepfer. Lee Konitz is one of the more distinctive alto saxophonists in jazz since Charlie Parker (and one of the few that did not outright copy Parker’s style), pairing his individual style and voice with a strong sense of innovation. Dan Tepfer has collaborated with Lee Konitz recording Duos with Lee on Sunnyside Records in 2009. Hear the Lee Konitz & Dan Tepfer Duo perform at Constellation on Friday, February 20th with sets at 7:30 ($20-$25) and 9:30 ($15-$25).

The name of this Indie Pop project sounds like a campy, 50s, B movie. It’s really Ted Brown’s daughter Anita who was working on a project with her jazz orchestra. Sounds like it would have been a cool project!
Born Identity invites friends to co-commission Anita Brown to write arrangements of music inspired by Lennie Tristano for her band, Anita Brown Jazz Orchestra
