MUSICIAN Born:

Lennie Tristano

A pianist of exceptional co-ordination and skill, for whom playing in different metres with each hand held no terrors, Lennie Tristano overcame blindness to become one of the leading teachers in jazz. While he was studying for his music degree in Chicago in the early 1940s, he had already begun playing and working with a circle of musicians who became his pupils - including saxophonist Lee Konitz and guitarist Billy Bauer. 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 some significant discs with the musicians who had developed bebop - notably Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie

Dave Bass: No Boundaries

Read "No Boundaries" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum

While No Boundaries is technically led by pianist Dave Bass, it seems that the company is kind of burying the lead. The real headliner here is the multi talented Ted Nash. Nash certainly has a jazz pedigree, with both a father and an uncle who were top notch performers themselves. Nash has also been ...

Opposite Ends of the Bench

Read "Opposite Ends of the Bench" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Think of the two most different jazz pianists you can imagine. Now think different-er. That's right—McCoy Tyner and Lennie Tristano are the subjects of this fortnight's excursion, and the confines of an hour-long podcast are as close as they've ever been to one another. Once all that gets settled, Mike closes the wooden apertures of perception ...

Lee Konitz: Il Ricordo di D'Andrea, Fasoli, Giuliani, Pieranunzi, Rava e Tommaso.

Read "Lee Konitz: Il Ricordo di D'Andrea, Fasoli, Giuliani, Pieranunzi, Rava e Tommaso." reviewed by Paolo Marra

Il sassofonista Lee Konitz è stato una delle figure più influenti del jazz moderno non solo per il suono unico al contralto e un senso dell'improvvisazione senza eguali, ma anche per essere rimasto nell'arco della sua lunga carriera sempre fedele a sé stesso ponendo la musica come protagonista assoluta della sua espressività, senza inutili esibizionismi.

Lydian Sound Orchestra: Mare 1519

Read "Mare 1519" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Lo straordinario viaggio attorno al mondo del 1519 di Magellano e dei suoi uomini (tra cui il vicentino Pigafetta che ne raccontò le vicende) è il motivo da cui prende spunto il nuovo concept album della Lydian Sound Orchestra. L'anno di partenza di quella straordinaria spedizione (che si concluse, morto Magellano in battaglia, nel 1522) è ...

Franco D'Andrea: Il pianoforte come sintesi di colori

Read "Franco D'Andrea: Il pianoforte come sintesi di colori" reviewed by Paolo Marra

Franco D'Andrea non è certo un musicista abituato a guardarsi indietro nonostante ormai da decenni rappresenti l'eccellenza del jazz italiano con più di duecento dischi incisi e svariati premi vinti. Il segreto di questa longevità artistica è da ritrovare nella sua capacità di aggiornare continuamente il suo lessico pianistico composto da riferimenti antropologici alla musica africana ...

The Legacy of Jimmy Giuffre and Lennie Tristano (1961 - 1969)

Read "The Legacy of Jimmy Giuffre and Lennie Tristano (1961 - 1969)" reviewed by Russell Perry

Clarinetist Jimmy Giuffre and pianist Lennie Tristano were heavily influential in the musical explorations of the 1960s. The Jimmy Giuffre Trio recorded a series of records in the early 1960s now seen as significant milestones in improvisational music, although they made no commercial impact at the time. His trio-mates-- pianist Paul Bley and bassist Steve Swallow--have ...

2019: The Year in Jazz

Read "2019: The Year in Jazz" reviewed by Ken Franckling

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
