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.

BBC Review Graceful, intelligent improvising that swings – what more could you want? Donna Lee Charlie Parker. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript. 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.


Jazz Latin New Age. 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.

Very understated music, but tough and restlessly curious inside. Marsh’s own Background Music is a fast cat-and-mouse two-sax backyround, 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.

I Can’t Get Started.

Both saxophonists put in time with Lennie Sarne 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. A welcome reissue for this session from Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh on alto and tenor respectively.

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