Clips taken from original discs may contain strong language. Links Reviews available at www. A welcome reissue for this session from Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh on alto and tenor respectively.

Marsh sticks mostly to the upper register of his horn, making differentiation even trickier. Donna Lee Charlie Parker. Very understated music, but tough and restlessly curious inside.
BBC Review Graceful, intelligent improvising that swings – what more could you want? Introspection Reflection Relaxation Sunday Afternoon. This page has been archived and is no longer updated. Tristano’s “Two Not One” brings out the best in the duo, it’s fractured, boppish melody provoking a joyous solo from Bcakground and an unusually gritty response from Bafkground one of his rare excursions to the lower frequencies.

CD: Lee Konitz/ Warne Marsh: London Concert | Music | The Guardian
No such complaints here, as support comes from the classic bop rhythm section of Kenny Clarke on drums and Oscar Pettiford on bass. 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 musoc individual of all spin-offs from him and astonishingly sustained linear inventiveness were unique contributions to jazz that have mostly been overlooked.

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

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.

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 except maybe late Lester Young. This set is worth searching for, as are all of the Konitz – Marsh collaborations.
