What excellent company! Lee Konitz alone would be reason enough tosee this line-up; didn't he play on the legendary Miles Davisrecord Birth of the Cool? He still isn't willing to rest on hislaurels and is always looking for new openings. In the mean time,pianist Brad Mehldau has grown into a true style icon due to theheights he reached with The Art of the Trio. Veteran Charlie Hadencan also rightly be called a legend. The bassist can boast arevolutionary past - with his Liberation Music Orchestra - and hascertainly not done away with it. He also made a number of recordswith Ornette Coleman, one of the founders of free jazz. Last year,Haden released a country album to pay homage to his childhood.Jorge Rossy completes the quartet; he used to drum in BradMehldau's band and was a partner in their cooperation, based on alot of intuition.
