From NPR/music and WBGO: “Dan Tepfer And Friends: Live At 92Y Tribeca”

“The jazz pianist Dan Tepfer isn’t yet 30, but he’s quickly built a reputation for quality ā€” versatility, too. Two years ago, he put out an album of improvised duets with iconic saxophonist Lee Konitz, who’s about 55 years his elder. Last year, Tepfer issued Five Pedals Deep, an elegant and modern trio album. (It’s his third trio record, actually.) Soon, he’ll also release his readings of and improvisations on J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations, originally written for solo harpsichord.

In the debut of The Checkout: Live at 92Y Tribeca concert series, Tepfer will show off these three sides of his musical personality. He’ll play selections from his Goldberg Variations solo. He’ll also call upon his friend and peer, tenor saxophonist Noah Preminger, for a series of duo tributes to Lee Konitz. (Konitz was originally scheduled to appear, but had to bow out for health reasons.) And he’ll play a set with his trio, with Joe Martin on bass and Ted Poor on drums.”
