Fred Katz was the first cellist to achieve prominence in jazz in the 1950s; and he was an innovator in more than just his choice of instrument. As a composer he combined jazz and classical influences into elegant--and sometimes elegantly odd--musical Mid-Century Modernism. Katz died September 7, 2013, at age 94. David Garland celebrates Katz's life and work with a wide range of his playful, imaginative music.
