HORO 32 - LEE KONITZ - HLL 101-32

Lee Konitz (born October 13, 1927 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American jazz composer and saxophone player.

Konitz is sometimes regarded as the preeminent cool jazz saxophonist, because he performed and recorded with Claude Thornhill, Lennie Tristano and with Miles Davis on his epochal Birth of the Cool, which gave the form its name.

Konitz has also been repeatedly noted as one of the few jazz saxophonists of the late 1940s and 1950s who did not seem imitative of the massively influential Charlie Parker.
