A remarkable book which presents a fascinating double portrait of the subject and the author.
John Chilton, professional jazz trumpeter and writer on jazz
This book is just what is needed to inform musicians, students, teachers, and historians around the world with an ‘up close and personal’ view of the genius of jazz pianist/composer/teacher, Lennie Tristano. Bassist, Peter Ind describes vividly how exciting it was to be living in New York City as a creative musician. Peter’s writing skills throughout will also enlighten and entertain the novice and non musician as well. The best part for me, is that it was written by a great player who was there right in the thick of it all.
Rufus Reid, Jazz Bassist
The Lennie Tristano story has needed telling for a long time. Who better than Peter Ind who knew Lennie and his music probably better than anyone.
Ira Gitler, doyen of New York jazz critics
Jazz Visions is a remarkable book about a remarkable musician.
Joe Lang, Jersey Jazz
Ind’s book has a great feel to it. As one of his subject’s steady bassists, he has personal insight into Tristano.
