Jazz masters in the Azores

My focus shifts to the mid-Atlantic: for the next week I’ll be hearing newly honored NEA Jazz Master Lee Konitz, pianist Joachim Kuhn, the Hot Club of Portugal Septet, reedist Marty Ehrlich’s Rites Quartet and a band led by NYC multi-instrumentalist Daniel Carter at the 10th annual Festival de Jazz de Ponta Delagada — where I’m also delivering a talk on “Jazz Now — and It’s Future” (during which I will tell all). Ponta Delgada is the largest city in the Azores, islands 700 miles west of Lisbon with a lengthy history as a port between Europe and the Americas. Reports from there to follow — and if you happen to be in the vicinity, please say hello.
