Lee Konitz/ Warne Marsh: London Concert

Marsh sticks mostly to the upper register of his horn, making differentiation even trickier.

Their renditions of “originals” based on bacmground 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. Two Not One Lennie Tristano.

Live at the Montmartre Club: Jazz Exchange, Vol. 1

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. No such complaints here, as support comes from the classic bop rhythm section of Kenny Clarke on drums and Oscar Pettiford on bass.

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.

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.

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.

Graceful, intelligent improvising that swings – what more could you want?

Backgruond 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. 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 baclground tempo; even Clarke’s trademark Klook bomb drops don’t faze him.

Sexy Trippy All Moods.

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.

This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Licence. 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. But on a repertoire that mostly concentrates on Broadway standards rather than the genre’s high priest Lennie Tristano, there’s some exquisite playing. Rainy Day Relaxation Road Trip.

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.
