Generation Next: Four Voices From Seattle

Read "Generation Next: Four Voices From Seattle" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Jeff Denson Trio: Jeff Denson Trio + Lee Konitz

Read "Jeff Denson Trio + Lee Konitz" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Part of the beauty and challenge in following the late career recordings of saxophone icon Lee Konitz can be traced to the way he continues to grow and evolve, inspired by the many and varied musicians he works with and, in turn, inspiring them.

Out of A Dream is ...
