Lee Konitz is an American jazz composer and alto saxophonist who was born in Chicago. Generally considered one of the main figures in the Cool jazz movement, Konitz has also performed successfully in bebop and avant-garde settings. Konitz was one of the few altoists to retain a distinctive sound when Charlie Parker exercised a tremendous influence on other players.
