From NPR’s legendary and much lamented Jazz Alive! series comes this weekend’s Downbeat post. Recorded at the 3rd Annual Art Park Jazz Festival in Lewiston New York, between September 1-3, 1979 and featuring the Lee Konitz Nonet.

I have a number of more recent concerts from Konitz performing in Europe, and I will be putting those up over the coming months, but this one is not only a great concert, it’s also from one of the most adventuresome concert series produced for radio in the 1970’s at a time when radio was still important and Public Radio was still vital.

And Lee Konitz is heading up a great group on this session.

Enjoy.
