Clever pianist Tepfer’s 2009 duets with Lee Konitz illustrated just how mercurial his ideas can be. Now he’s rolling through a series of monthly pairings, investigating the levels of rapport he and his partners can achieve. This time out, his foil is the celebrated young saxophonist Preminger, who’s deeply aware of pliability’s power. Give and take should be the essence of this performance.
