Morning! No Coltrane postings, as I'm currently breaking the back of the contrafact essay.

Taking a long hard look at Tristano and having issues with writing about him [a sense of bitterness that dipped into the wrong side?].

Found something of pianist Ethan Iverson's from 2011 that adds a healthy perspective.

In some ways it's lucky I'm writing about Tristano's adulation for Parker, which I think was large.

But some comments tip a too far past the scale of "embittered genius" to not be called out.
