Revisiting and reliving Tristano

Postby keith » Wed Aug 11, 2010 11:43 am

An interview with Jason Scott

Jason Scott can’t get away from the music of Lennie Tristano, and it’s a good thing. The gigs on which he performs the piano master’s compositions are just as much entertaining history lessons as they are a couple sets of interesting and not often heard jazz. In a way, Scott is keeping a part of jazz from the 40s and 50s alive, reminding us all that there was more going on in the bebop movement of the late 1940s than just Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.

Seems like that link was broken so I posted the right one here:

A great read! Would like to hear their version of "Wow", one of my greatest favorite tunes with Lennie.
