"Lennie's Pennies" A Birthday Tribute to Legendary Jazz Pianist & Composer Lennie Tristano
Lennie Tristano's legacy of influential achievements in the field of jazz includes pioneering early multi-track recordings, the first recordings of group free-improvisation in 1949, introducing new levels of rhythmic and harmonic complexity as well as a prolific teaching career with many notable students including Lee Konitz, Warne Marsh, Charles Mingus, Connie Crothers and Sheila Jordan. Tonight's performance will honor what would have been his 94th birthday with heartfelt interpretations of music by and associated with Tristano and his associates.
