Teatro dell'Arte. November 4 F,M,P,J. Almost Tea. He told the band that they were going to play without any pre-established plan: no standard melody, no set chord changes, no set key, nothing. The music would be completely improvised. Time signatures shifted constantly. Tristano changed keys so frequently that the music sounded atonal, and the group interacted without the logic and direction of a predetermined chord progression.
But Lee Konitz admitted later that at the time they were not really aware of what it was they had accomplished. Besides breaking the boundaries of jazz theory, Tristano made adventurous forays into new areas of music technology. Records were expected to reproduce a live performance, and an artist was thought to be cheating if he released a record that he was not able to play in concert.
No use is made of overdubbing or tape speeding on any selection. In addition to objecting to his unorthodox recording practices, critics found his music too intellectual, cold, unemotional, and detached. It was, his detractors maintained, not jazz at all: It did not swing.
It was not rooted in the blues. It relied too much on European models and sounds. In , Tristano reduced his club appearances and his recording schedule to devote himself to teaching. He opened his own school of jazz in New York City, the first important institution of its kind. As these musicians became more involved in their own musical careers they gave up teaching, and within a few years Tristano was forced to close the school and return to private instruction, first in his home in Queens and later on Long Island.
Tristano had a reputation as a contentious, difficult person. He was openly critical of the talent of many of highly regarded contemporaries, such as Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk. He also demanded absolute loyalty from his students and colleagues. Despite such personality problems, he acquired a name as a remarkable teacher. He inculcated precision and demanded that his students acquire a full command of their instruments. Every student began the same way. Only after students were intimately familiar with these accomplished solos were they allowed to start working on solos of their own.
I once asked him about a large concern of mine, which was to eliminate what was making me play mechanically at the time. Tristano performed only rarely from the early s on.
