Grandfather is still kickin'
It is only by imitating that we can begin to learn. Yet the beauty of improvisation is that we imitate until we get our own figures and practice schedule to begin to accomplish the acquisition of VOICE.Certainly the word is out! Mr. Lee Konitz has a voice and still at 80 plus is alive and kickin' while taking no prisoners. He does not need to, as he has weathered storms to be able to play as he did at the Jazz Standard in New York recently with Rufus Reid on bass.Maybe for the likes of Mr. Konitz, we can contemplate a club of that sort in Houston. Can we handle it?.Original
