Konitz is sometimes regarded as the preeminent cool
jazz saxophonist, because he performed and recorded
with Claude Thornhill, Lennie Tristano (both often cited as
important cool jazz proponents of the mid 1940s), and
with Miles Davis on his epochal Birth of the Cool, which
gave the form its name.
Konitz has also been repeatedly noted as one of the few jazz saxophonists of the late 1940s and 1950s who did not seem imitative of the massively influential Charlie Parker.
In the early 1950s, Konitz recorded and toured with Stan Kenton's orchestra.
In 1961, he recorded Motion with Elvin Jones on drums and Sonny Dallas on bass

Steve Argüelles: Home
by Ludovico Granvassu
How do you approach a solo recording session as a drummer? Especially as a drummer that does not seem to believe in drum solos?

Giovanni Benvenuti e il Questionario di Proust
by Paolo Peviani

In questo modo si crea una connessione istintuale e non razionale con l'ascoltatore che mi permette di essere accessibile senza rinunciare a ...
