  • Leonard Joseph Tristano was an American jazz pianist, composer, arranger and teacher of jazz improvisation. Historically important are the first recorded free group improvisations, his expansion of jazz harmony through a preoccupation with atonality and counterpoint, and his early experimentations with recording techniques such as overdubbing. In addition, his work as a jazz educator meant that he exerted a substantial influence on jazz through figures such as Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh. Tristano studied for bachelor's and master's degrees in music in Chicago before moving to New York City in 1946. He played with leading bebop musicians and formed his own small bands.
