Born March 19, 1919, pianist and composer Lennie Tristano has come to be considered one of the most influential jazz artists of the 1950s, as much for his performances and recordings, as for his unique approach to teaching improvisation in a manner that became a bridge from bebop to later styles. Tristano was also a regular at the original Birdland from 1949 through the early 1960s. For this celebration, Birdland brings together a group of jazz all-stars to explore Tristano’s style, compositions, and influence.
