Ahmad Jamal & Lee Konitz

inds us wise elders occasionally have the yen to push envelopes. The 80-year-old pianist bends the parameters of a melody and twists rhythms until his audience drops their jaws. The 83-year-old alto player is a doyen of deconstruction, cracking apart thematic material and fusing the chunks back together in novel ways. No question: they're two of the most inquisitive bandleaders working today, regardless of age.
