Agreed. Beautiful, long flowing lines. Very melodic and a constant stream of great ideas.Jimmy sounds great on anything but it's not his sound I love, it's what he plays.
The Tristano school was amazing and underappreciated. I studied with Sal Mosca, another Tristanoite and it was an amazing experience. Not many people play as well as they did. They truly are improvising, no licks and that's very rare. Phil BaroneInteresting but it's that odd thing with the rhythm section charging along and the guy sounds like he's in the other room not listening to them.
The same thing I don't like about the Tristano-Marsh-Konitz stuff.
To each their own.
