#1 - Have You Seen? - "Lennie's Pennies" Connie Crothers

Check out Lennie Tristano's favorite piano pupil taking on "Lennie's Pennies."  It's quite apparent Crothers (lovingly nicknamed "Con-Con") took Tristano's lessons in polyrhythm to heart.  Connie is still around teaching and performing her own music in NYC.  You can also check out some of her lessons in free improvisation via Sonny's Pianos homepage.  Enjoy!

Here is Connie improvising "freely" on "What is this Thing Called Love?"
