The Jazz Session #423: Lee Konitz and Camila Meza


The season premiere of The Jazz Session begins with an extended conversation with saxophonist Lee Konitz. Konitz talks about why he followed a different path than most players of his generation; how he continues to find new things to play on standards; and what he looks for in the people he plays with. The music in this part of the show comes from Enfants Terribles (Half Note, 2012), his live album with Gary Peacock, Bill Frisell and Joey Baron. The album is available in The Jazz Session’s store.

In the second part of the show, guitarist and vocalist Camila Meza returns to talk about her new EP, Prisma (2013). Meza is performing at The Blue Note in NYC on October 11, 2013. Her new album is also available in The Jazz Session’s store.
