Lennie says…

Ein kleiner, aber sehr lehrreicher Ausschnitt aus einer Dokumentation der Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation über Lennie Tristano. Think about it!

You could make your fingers reproduce exactly what you felt, if you really work that. I achieved it not only spending a lot of time at the keyboard but finding ways I could make my fingers reproduce my deepest feelings. It meant when you hit a note with a finger you sank into that note all the way to the bottom of the keyboard until that… baaaooom!! Right?!

It´s not instant composing, it´s not following any kind of a formula. All you do is hear music in your head and reproduce it.
