What excellent company! Lee Konitz
alone would be reason enough to see this line-up; didn't he play on the legendary Miles Davis record Birth of the Cool
? He still isn't willing to rest on his laurels and is always looking for new openings. In the mean time, pianist Brad Mehldau
has grown into a true style icon due to the heights he reached with The Art of the Trio
. Veteran Charlie Haden
can also rightly be called a legend. The bassist can boast are volutionary past - with his Liberation Music Orchestra - and has certainly not done away with it. He also made a number of records with 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 Brad Mehldau's band and was a partner in their cooperation, based on a lot of intuition.
