Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Lennie Tristano was an improviser who always gave the impression that his playing was somewhat (deceptively) pre-conceived. His playing was considered intellectual, cerebral and over-modernistic. He transgressed the bop-influence to experiment with overdubbing that influenced Bill Evans but did not sit easily with purists. What we have here are four tracks recorded in his home studio. The opening 'Line Up' is a wonderful example of Tristano's piano playing building his solos in a combination of chords and single lines. The 'Requiem' piece is a moving tribute to Charlie Parker using a second overdubbed piano part. The structure of his seemingly simple harmonics are brilliantly constructed.
The quartet numbers featuring Lee Konitz were recorded in the Sing Sing Room of the Confucius Restaurant in 1955. The music produced has been available previously on Mosaic (deleted) and also on Gambit 69270 in more complete format. The set consists of standards. This may seem familiar fare but the piano intricacy of Tristano is ideal for Konitz who is quite conservative for the most part by his standards but retains his cool, immaculate lines on 'These Foolish Things', 'If I Had You',the beautiful 'Ghost of a Chance'. 'All The Things You Are' is just a wonderful example of Tristano's playing with the quartet. Art Taylor(d) and Gene Ramey(b) work well as a team. A marvellous album and an ideal partner to 'The New Tristano'.

Format: Audio CD
This record was issued in 1955 and the four studio tracks are a landmark in jazz history. Line up is based on the changes from All of me. The bas and drums were recorded separately before the piano, Tristano then tuned the tape so it suited his tempo and was in A-flat. He then recorded the piano on top of the bas and drums. Listen carefully this is a modern masterpiece. Requiem is dedicated to the memory of Charlie Parker, who died in March 1955 also a modern masterpiece that belongs in every jazz collection. The trick recordings on this record caused great controversy when they were released in 1955, but Tristano had been doing these experiments since the beginning of the fifties, but this record started the debate.
Tristano is a fantastic jazz pianist, who has influenced a whole range of younger pianists and other musicians, like Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Cecil Taylor and Lee Konitz. This cd brings some of his best recording buy it and listen carefully.

Nice tunes. Great improvisation! 17 Nov. 2012
By Doc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Lennie's ability to improvise and take the listener places is amazing. The first 4 pieces had some studio effects put on so the sound is rather special - considering the technology of the time.
