Background Music – Warne Marsh Quintet | Shazam

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. The young American Mark Turner is one of the few contemporary saxophonists who sounds as if he’s listened to Marsh. Very understated marxh, but tough and restlessly curious inside.

But on a repertoire that mostly baclground on Broadway standards rather than the genre’s high priest Lennie Tristano, there’s some exquisite playing. Find out more about our use of this dataand also our policy on profanity Find out more about our use of this data.

Introspection Late Night Partying. Marsh sticks mostly to the upper register of his horn, backgorund differentiation even trickier. This is also a London concert featuring Konitz, but from and in partnership with the late Warne Marsh, musif 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 bacmground to jazz that have mostly been overlooked.

Romantic Evening Sex All Themes. A padding, understated hybrid of bebop and a kind of baroque counterpoint, it might be a little subdued and doodly-sounding for some. Donna Lee Charlie Parker. This page has been archived and is no longer updated.


This set is worth searching for, as are all of the Konitz – Marsh collaborations. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.

Introspection Reflection Relaxation Sunday Afternoon. Please enable JavaScript in your browser to use the site fully. 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. Jazz Latin New Age. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Licence. 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.

No such complaints here, as support comes from the classic bop rhythm section of Kenny Clarke on drums and Oscar Pettiford on bass. Clips taken from original discs may contain strong language. You can add or edit information about with Warne Marsh at musicbrainz. 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.

Drinking Hanging Out In Love. A welcome reissue for this session from Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh on alto and tenor respectively. I Can’t Get Started.

Lee Konitz with Warne Marsh – Wikipedia

Even by the mid-’50s when they were not as influenced by Waren Tristano as previously particularly Konitztheir long melodic lines and unusual tones caused them to stand out from the crowd. Their renditions of “originals” based on common chord changes along with versions of “Topsy,” “There Will Never Be Another You” and “Donna Lee” are darne enjoyable and swing hard yet fall into the category of cool jazz.

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. Find out more about our use of this data. 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.

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

BBC Review Graceful, intelligent improvising that swings – what more could you want? Rainy Day Relaxation Road Trip. Tracklistings come from MusicBrainz. 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 warnf to the lower frequencies.
