I was sent a show WKCR made on Sept. 11, 2006–a tribute to Lenny Tristano with a live Paul Motian interview (by Ted Pankan). I learned that the 'Warne Marsh' album was supervised by Lennie Tristano and that is why Paul listed it in his datebook as a Tristano recording. Paul tells many of the stories I read on this episode. Ted Pankan mentions that a CD will be available of the show but I can't find it. If you know how the public can access the Lennie Tristano tribute, please post a link.
