TOP 100 REVIEWERon 13 March 2014
Tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh(1927-1987), a disciple of the Lennie Tristano school, recorded this excellent album in New York City on December 12, 1957 & January 16, 1958 with Ronnie Ball(piano); Paul Chambers(bass) & Philly Joe Jones or Paul Motian(drums).
Marsh's oblique and sinuous tenor playing is heard on 6 tracks(2 quartets & 4 pianoless trios) with a stimulating rhythm section.
Highlights include Charlie Parker's 'Yardbird Suite' and Cole Porter's 'It's All Right With Me'.
Long unavailable in the UK this compelling album has now been reissued on WARNER's 1000 YEN series and is an ideal introduction to the overlooked Warne Marsh.
A powerful magnifying glass will be required to read Nat Hentoff's album notes.

I've always admired the bass of Paul Chambers,and he really excels on this wonderful recording of this classic album.I can't recommend it high enough.

Not so much a review as an addendum Already have this album as part of the Lenny Tristano Lee Konitz Warne Warsh 90's Mosaic label box set (cost an arm and a leg!) but great to have it seperately .Produced by Tristano it is characteristically edited to include only the best music recorded which means incomplete song performances in some cases.Tristano issued two live albums ,The Art of Improvising ,edited for Marsh solos only!! later issued by Verve complete as Lee Konitz Live at the half note (with Bill Evans Henry Grimes Paul Motion)
