Lee Konitz- Manha De Carnaval

Carnaval is over.

There's no such thing as typical Lee Konitz. Still, hearing him play a Brazilian standard accompanied only by guitar is unlikely. As I wrote yesterday, I saw Konitz perform with Bill Frisell a few days ago. It's remarkable that a guy who began recording with the Paul Whiteman orchestra in 1947 specializes in free jazz almost 60 years later.
