The format of the piano-led trio experimented by Bill Evans was further explored
by Chicago's white pianist Denny Zeitlin
who relocated to San Francisco in 1964,
on albums such as Cathexis (march 1964) for a trio, that set the theme
for his research, Carnival (october 1964), for another trio (Charlie Haden on bass),
Zeitgeist (march 1967), for the same trio, that
included the free-form Mirage.
He was not afraid to tamper with dissonance and electronics, for example
in the 14-minute El Fuego de las Montanas, off Expansion (1973),
in the four-movement suite Syzygy, off Syzygy (1977)
and in the melodramatic film soundtrack Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978).
A psychiatrist by profession,
Zeitlin was pioneering a fusion of jazz, rock, classical and electronic music.
Zeitlin recorded the solo-piano albums
Tidal Wave (january 1981),
Solo Voyage (november 2004),
Precipice (january 2008).
Denny Zeitlin also recorded the "solo electro-acoustic adventures" of Both/And (Sunnyside, 2013), containing the 23-minute Monk-Y Business Revisited (originally composed in 1989).
Riding the Moment (recorded in 2013 and 2014)
was an electronic collaboration with drummer George Marsh.
