Genius Ages Slow: Lee Konitz @ the Village Vanguard

NPR is doing jazz a tremendous service with its Live at the Village Vanguard series, which I have heavily pushed here.  The current offering is a concert by Lee Konitz, backed by Dan Tepfer on piano and Matt Wilson on drums.  Konitz' alto has 82 years of heart behind it.  I first heard him on a Bill Evans album, Crosscurrents

I am too tired tonight to reflect on all the joy that Konitz has brought me.  But consider this sample, from one of Konitz' greatest albums:
I Remember You/Motion
