The Lee Konitz Nonet

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The Lee Konitz Nonet never really prospered, but they recorded several excellent albums. With such top players as fl├╝gelhornist John Eckert, trombonist Jimmy Knepper, and baritonist Ronnie Cuber in the group, and colorful arrangements provided by Sy Johnson, this band's repertoire was as wide as one would expect from a Konitz band. Whether it be the Louis Armstrong-associated "Struttin' with Some Barbeque," a Lester Young-inspired "Sometimes I'm Happy," Charlie Parker's "Chi-Chi," "Giant Steps," or some newer originals, the results are frequently superb.
