Even by the mid-’50s when they were not as influenced by Lennie Tristano as previously particularly Konitztheir long melodic lines and unusual tones caused them to stand out from the crowd. Tristano’s “Two Not One” brings ,arsh 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. Graceful, intelligent improvising that swings – what more could you want?

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


BBC Review Graceful, intelligent improvising that swings – what more warnne you want? Drinking Hanging Out In Love. But on a repertoire that mostly concentrates on Broadway standards rather than the genre’s high priest Lennie Tristano, there’s some exquisite playing.

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.

Altoist Lee Konitz and tenor-saxophonist Warne Marsh always made for a perfect team. Find out more about our use of this data.

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. 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.

Lee Konitz/ Warne Marsh: London Concert

Marsh sticks mostly to the upper register of his horn, making differentiation even trickier. No such complaints here, as support comes from the classic bop rhythm section of Kenny Clarke on drums and Oscar Pettiford on bass. Please enable JavaScript in your browser to use the site fully. 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.

This is also a London concert featuring Konitz, but from and in partnership with the muzic 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.

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 mafsh that owed little to the prevailing tenor tradition except maybe late Lester Young.
