Album Review

Konitz, Lee; Cheek, Chris; Leibovici, Stephane Furic – “Jugendstil II” – [Esp-Disk]

Cousin Mary   6/23/2010   CD, Jazz

Slow, spare, quiet, dreamy interweaving among 2 saxophones and a bass, subtly joined from time to time by other instruments. Nicely balanced with beautiful tones. Lee Konitz (born 1927) is a jazz composer and alto saxophonist born in Chicago, Illinois. Chris Cheek (born 1968) is an American jazz saxophonist from St. Louis, Missouri. Stephane Furic Leibovici is French new music composer and bassist known for his improvisational groups.

The album’s title Jugenstil translates literally from German as “youth style” but means “Avant Garde”.
