Lee Konitz - Subconscious-Lee
Prestige Records | 1950
This album is fucking delicious. I always play it late at night. Such soft, smooth, swinging tones.
At about the same time Konitz was in New York recording Subconscious-Lee—his first album as a bandleader—he was also recruited by Miles Davis to record the landmark record Birth of the Cool.
Konitz, born in Chicago in 1927, is still recording and touring.
