Lee Konitz :

Lee Konitz: Back to Basics : In Japan, where tradition is revered, and where a great potter or shakuhachi master is designated a National Living Treasure, he would certainly be a prime candidate for such an honor. Konitz is a master of the art of jazz improvisation.

@last.fm : Konitz has also been repeatedly noted as one of the few jazz saxophonists of the late 1940s and 1950s who did not seem imitative of the massively influential Charlie Parker.
