Sexy Trippy All Moods.

Marsh’s own Background Music is a fast cat-and-mouse two-sax scramble, Konitz wraps silvery tracery around Marsh’s theme statement on It’s You Or No-One, Konitz is meditatively inventive on You Go To My Head, and they eventually both play the piece of genuine Bach counterpoint much of the ensemble work has sounded like all along.

Tristano’s “Two Not One” brings out the best in the duo, it’s fractured, boppish melody provoking a joyous solo from Konitz and an unusually gritty response from Marsh one of his rare excursions to the lower frequencies. No such complaints here, as support comes from the classic bop rhythm section of Kenny Clarke on drums and Oscar Pettiford on bass.

Background Music

Marsg padding, understated hybrid of bebop and a kind of baroque counterpoint, it might be a little subdued and doodly-sounding for some. Indeed from the opening “Topsy”, a tune most associated with Count Basie, Clarke and Pettiford display an urgent, warm propulsion which they maintain throughout the session.

Moreover they had built up an almost telepathic rapport; when soloing marsy as on “I Can’t Get Started” it becomes quickly pretty impossible to tell who’s who as their lines curl and fold in on each other.

A welcome reissue for warrne session from Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh on alto and tenor respectively.

Graceful, intelligent improvising that swings – what more could you backgground Both saxophonists had by this time evolved highly individual vocabularies; Konitz had somehow managed to avoid the influence of Charlie Parker, and Marsh had similarly developed a distinctive voice that owed little to the prevailing tenor tradition magsh maybe late Lester Young.

Links Reviews available at www. But on a repertoire that mostly concentrates on Broadway standards rather than the genre’s high priest Lennie Tristano, there’s some exquisite playing.

Altoist Lee Konitz and tenor-saxophonist Warne Marsh always made for a perfect team. This set is worth searching for, as are all of the Konitz – Marsh collaborations.

Their renditions of “originals” based on common chord changes along with versions of “Topsy,” “There Will Never Be Another You” and “Donna Lee” are quite enjoyable and swing hard yet fall into the category of cool jazz. Both saxophonists put in time with Lennie Tristano before becoming inextricably associated with the cool school, and as such were often criticised as being over cerebral or even worse, lacking in swing a heinous crime indeed in the eyes of the jazz police.

This is also a London concert featuring Konitz, but from and in partnership with the late Warne Marsh, the extraordinary Californian saxophonist, whose brittle, woody, soprano-sax-like tone on a tenor drawn from Lester Young, but one of the most individual of all spin-offs from him and astonishingly sustained linear inventiveness were unique contributions to jazz that have mostly been overlooked.

It’s fascinating to hear them dissect Parker’s “Donna Lee”; Konitz resists the urge to grandstand and somehow his playing maintains its floating, aerated quality even at this high tempo; even Clarke’s trademark Klook bomb drops don’t faze him.

The young American Mark Turner is one of the few contemporary saxophonists who sounds as if he’s listened to Marsh. Marsh sticks mostly to the upper register of his horn, making differentiation even trickier.
