Lee Konitz Quintet
If you're looking for the through-line binding this intergenerational outfit, try lyricism. From Konitz's pithy sax trills to Joey Baron's glistening cymbal chatter, each member likes to boost the beauty of any given passage. It comes down to touch, editing, and a healthy respect for silence. With Gary Peacock's languid bass lines and Bill Frisell's skills at murmuring, it just might be a dominant force in this week's program. With Francisco Mela Quintet.
