As part of a seemingly endless series of losses to the jazz world as of date we too have learned of the passing of Lee Konitz. At 92 he was a champion of jazz improvisation with a sense of understated cool and hipness that would leave a mark on far too many musicians and fans to ever be able to count. In this hour we will sample the smallest review of how Lee brought out the best of others over the decades as well enjoy some other classic sessions that form a small part of the eternal flame of jazz improvisation that continues to burn brightly today.
