By 1952, pianist Lennie Tristano was starting to withdraw from public performances, spending most of his time teaching. This formerly unknown recording matches him with four of his best students: altoist Lee Konitz, tenor-saxophonist Warne Marsh, bassist Peter Ind and drummer Al Levitt. Together they explore six common chord changes, five of them given new titles. Although not essential, this music is quite enjoyable and a good example of Lennie Tristano's unique approach to jazz improvisation.
Du jazz autrement. C’est ce que fait la pianiste Perrine Mansuy pour que l’espace se crée et l’atmosphère s’amplifie. Dans son jeu, ses mélodies et ses échanges avec ses partenaires musiciens, elle se pose ou saute, caresse ou gifle. Avec le bigarré Rainbow Shell, Perrine Mansuy s'engage sur la voie d’une sorte de pop rêveuse. Un rêve qui serait évidemment éveillé. Zébrée des guitares blues et des samples de Rémy Decrouy, soutenue par les percussions de son autre compagnon de route, Jean-Luc Difraya, et l’arrivée du violoncelliste Eric Longsworth qui colore l’ensemble de nuances nouvelles, sa musique romanesque est inspirée des poèmes de Katherine Mansfield. Le chanteur Mathis Haug prête également sa voix à ces instants de vie fugitifs, ces plages de rêve orchestrées par un piano. Au cœur de cet album créatif à souhait, le jeu de Perrine Mansuy est un vrai diadème.

Features 24 bit digital remastering. Comes with a description. Late in 1967, bassist Cecil McBee left Charles Lloyd's band and was replaced by Ron McClure. The jazz critics and public alike all held their breaths, since Lloyd's band had taken the entire world by storm on the festival circuit; playing Town Hall would surely be an acid test not only of McClure's ability to fill such a big space, but the band's as well – to see if the fire would continue to burn as it had previously. They needn't have worried. The gig, which is presented here as Soundtrack, stomps with all the fury of a live gospel choir trying to claim Saturday night for God instead of the other guy.
