Sonny Clark was, one of the favourite pianists among the hard-boppers, & he put in a lot of sideman appearances in the 1950s & 1960s (though, interestingly enough, he got his start as an accompanist to Buddy DeFranco). His playing draws on the main models of the time--Powell, Monk, Silver--along with one unexpected source, Lennie Tristano (not an obvious influence beyond Clark's fondness for extremely long & cogently argued lines in his solos). But Clark's playing is nonetheless immediately recognizable, both when he solos, & when he comps--he is an especially logical accompanist.
