"Any appearance by the great altoist is reason to take notice, but this promises to be something else ? the resurrection of one of the most consistently satisfying midsize bands of the late 1970s, which was itself inspired by Miles Davis?s 1949 Nonet." -PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER Represents the third time Lee Konitz, a true living legend of jazz, has assembled his fabled Nonet in his sixty-year career! Features never-before-recorded Konitz originals arranged by internationally recognized composer/saxophonist Ohad Talmor. This live recording at NY?s Jazz Standard, fueled by a band of tip-top improvisers from the Big Apple and Rio, captures the energy and spontaneity of the six-night club gig. Anticipated 2006 appearances at New York?s JVC Jazz Festival and the Chicago Jazz Fest as well as a high-profile celebration of Konitz?s eightieth followed by a national tour.
