Andy Kahn/Larry McKenna Tribute To Lennie Tristano at Chris' Jazz Cafe
Lennie Tristano mastered the bebop style, playing both intricate runs and sustained chordal passages, and by the late 1940s was working in New York, where he made significant discs with musicians who developed bebop - notably Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. But his own musical direction involved exploring ideas of both freedom and abstraction, together with a 'cool' atmosphere. Larry McKenna & Andy Kahn celebrate this icon of jazz.
