DOWN BEAT original review: Lennie Tristano (Atlantic 1224)
“Lennie Tristano’s first LP in several years is an absorbing one. Anyone still suspecting his ability to communicate emotion should hear the naked power in the ‘Requiem’ blues he plays for Charlie Parker. On the ballad sides with Lee, there is a richer, deeper though never ornamental lyricism than Lennie has shown on records before. Konitz is lucid, logical, unfailingly interesting, and increasingly emotional.” (Nat Hentoff)

All Music Guide: Lennie Tristano (Atlantic 1224)
“Lennie Tristano’s Atlantic debut was a controversial album at the time of its release. The first four tunes on this set shocked the jazz world at the time of their release. The reason was that on those four original tunes Tristano actually overdubbed piano lines, and sped the tape up and down for effect. The last five tunes on the disc were recorded live with a rhythm section of bassist Gene Ramey and drummer Art Taylor. This is a gorgeous album with a beautiful juxtaposition between its first and second halves.” (Thom Jurek)
