"It was always a dream of mine when I was a student back at Berklee College of Music that I would someday be in Lee Konitz’s band, and as luck would have it, that is exactly what happened! Lee heard my trio (Minsarah) performing and really liked what he heard, and that led him to attend three more of our concerts. After hearing us for the fourth time, Lee invited us to meet at his apartment for a session - this led to the formation of the Lee Konitz New Quartet, a band in which Lee wrote is the first actual band he’s ever had! To date, the quartet has released three albums on Enja Records: “Deep Lee” and the “Lee Konitz New Quartet: Live at the Village Vanguard" and "Lee Konitz: Standards Live at the Village Vanguard".
