Lennie Tristano has certainly been a major influence if not the influnce in my music. I have studied 12 yrs. or more with Sal Mosca and played extensively with Lou Stelluti, Stan Fortuna, Peter Scatteretico and Joe Solomon. I think without Lennie's inspiration I would never have learned to improvise and love the real jazz masters.
