This set is worth searching for, as are all of the Konitz – Marsh collaborations. Drinking Hanging Out In Love. 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 bacground indeed in the eyes of the jazz police. 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.


Very understated music, but tough and restlessly curious inside.

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 mysic spin-offs from him and astonishingly sustained linear inventiveness were unique contributions to jazz that have mostly been overlooked.

Donna Lee Charlie Parker. Jazz Latin New Age. But on a repertoire that mostly concentrates on Broadway standards rather than the genre’s high priest Lennie Tristano, there’s some exquisite playing. 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.


Lee Konitz/ Warne Marsh: London Concert

A padding, understated hybrid of bebop and a kind of baroque counterpoint, it might be a little subdued and doodly-sounding for some. 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 marshh lower frequencies.

Introspection Reflection Relaxation Sunday Afternoon. The young American Mark Turner is one of the few contemporary saxophonists who sounds as if he’s listened to Marsh.

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 on each other. 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 mussic.
