The young American Mark Turner is one of the few contemporary saxophonists who sounds as if he’s listened to Marsh. Romantic Evening Sex All Themes.

Maarsh 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.

Moreover they had built up an almost telepathic mwrsh 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.

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.

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 backgrohnd 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.

Casa Valdez Studios: Two horn chart of Warne Marsh’s Background Music

Very understated music, but tough and mueic curious inside. 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 crime indeed in the eyes of the jazz police.

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 warbe at this high tempo; even Clarke’s trademark Klook bomb drops don’t faze him. A welcome reissue for this session from Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh on alto and tenor respectively.
