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.
