Michael Caldwell

The boys focus on two pianists this time - the recently departed McCoy Tyner (stalwart of John Coltrane's "great quartet" and indefatigable leader of countless record sessions) and the long-departed Lennie Tristano (reclusive doyen of cool jazz education).  The subjects couldn't be less alike but both made fascinating music.  Normally, we'd insert some kind of joke right about here, but we're too busy hoarding toilet paper.  In pop matters, Mike's a real bastard while Pat muses about the Beatles' "best" album and its mixed attitudes towards women.  Lennie Tristano – NEW TRISTANO/THE REAL TRISTANO; THE DUO SESSIONS; McCoy Tyner – THE REAL MCCOY; EXTENSIONS; TRIDENT.
