Jaki Byard's live recordings during a 1965 stint at pike are among his most exciting tracks recorded for Prestige. Live! At Lennie's, Vol. 1 features the eclectic pianist with a band including tenor saxophonist Joe Farrell, bassist George Tucker, and drummer Alan Dawson. Byard's galloping blues "Twelve" gets things off to a great start, with Farrell contributing hot solos on both tenor and soprano saxes, with the leader fueling him with wild progressions and shouting encouragement.
Byard played with trumpeter Maynard Ferguson in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and was a member of bands led by bassist Charles Mingus for several years, including on several studio and concert recordings. The first of his recordings as a leader was in 1960, but, despite being praised by critics, his albums and performances did not gain him much wider attention. In his 60-year career, Byard recorded at least 35 albums as leader, and more than 50 as a sideman. Byard's influence on the music comes from his combining of musical styles during performance, and his parallel career in teaching. Jaki Byard Quartet Live!, Vol. 1. Prestige.
