Lennie Tristano was a bridge between bebop and later, freer forms of jazz. He is less appreciated than he should be because commentators found him hard to categorize and because he chose not to commercialize. Tristano is regarded as one of the first to teach jazz, particularly improvisation, in a structured way. He taught musicians irrespective of their instrument and structured lessons to meet the needs of each individual. Tristano's legacy is what he added technically to the jazz vocabulary and his vision of jazz as a serious musical craft. In 2013 Lennie Tristano was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and in 2015 he was added to the Ertegun Hall of Fame.
