Lennie Tristano Conceptualizes

"I don't compose anything. See, that's the great difference between jazz and any other kind of music. The music is already in your head, and all you do is let your hands—depending on what instrument you play—reproduce what you hear as you hear it. So that what you come up with is something completely spontaneous. Like when you hear a great Charlie Parker solo, what you actually do is experience somebody in the act of creating beauty." Lennie Tristano
