Unheralded by the general public, the blind pianists work was revered by many jazz greats including the legendary Charlie Parker.

Tristanos persuasive personality made him an ideal teacher, and he proved that (against the accepted theory of the time) jazz improvisation could be taught. His guidance played a big part in the development of many instrumentalists including saxophonists Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh and double-bassist Peter Ind. It is Inds long, direct involvement with his subject that makes this such a revealing book: the story of an English musician going to New York to study with an unsung Jazz giant.

In the process, Tristanos genius is examined and his reputation revalued, with Ind making a persuasive case for the pianist to be placed at the centre of jazz developments in the mid-20th century.
