Album Notes
In my view, pianist, composer, and bandleader Lennie Tristano’s musical “concept” featured a deep respect for the traditions and history of jazz, a focus on the melodic line and improvisation, and new approaches to harmony and rhythm. His influence was felt through his performing and recording career beginning in 1946, and also through his unique private teaching practice in the New York area until his death in 1978.

Owing to the personal influence of bassist Sonny Dallas, this music has been an important part of my life since my student days. Sonny was recruited by Warne Marsh to work with the Tristano quintet for the 1959 Newport All-Stars tour, and remained with the group through the mid-1960s. We met in 1980, and with his support I went on to study and perform with Warne Marsh in New York. I kept in touch with both of them for the balance of their lives, and they remain primary influences and sources of inspiration and ideas. Both men had an active and unique sense of humor, and when I remember something funny that either one of them had said, it invariably brings a smile to my face!

Please visit my website for a longer version of these notes and comments on the selections. This CD was edited for length, however the website features an HD-audio streaming link to both sets of the full concert.
