Warne MarshUnissued 1975 Copenhagen Studio Recordings – Warne Marsh Quartet ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Warne Marsh first rose to fame in the 50s, but he was even more of a wonderful player in the 70s – even though his records from that generation never fully get their due! This set's one of those great moments from that time – a record that will convert you to Marsh from his very first few notes – blown with a raspy edge and depth of soul that Warne didn't have 20 years before, and set up in a loosely swinging combo with Dave Cliff on guitar, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Alan Levitt on drums – a group who really give Warne plenty of room to open up and blow! The recording quality is great – and although unissued at the time, these tracks are all totally top-shelf – material that stands strongly alongside the few Marsh album released in the decade. Titles include "The Song Is You", "Lennie Bird", "Blues In G Flat", "Be My Love", "Without A Song", "Lennie Bird", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "You Don't Know What Love Is". CD

Warne MarshAll Music ... LP
Nessa, 1976. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A wonderful later album from 50s cool jazz saxophonist Warne Marsh – one that really has an incredible focus on his tone! With his combination of a warm full tone and cool post-Tristano phrasing, Marsh has one of the most singular voices on the tenor, and one of our favorites! This mid 70s recording has him heading up a quartet playing modern bop, with Lou Levy on piano and Jake Hanna & Fred Atwood providing the pulse underneath. Unlike a lot of other players, Marsh didn't slow down or lose it in later years and his concept sounds as fresh in these later recordings as it does on his classic sides with Konitz & Tristano. The group shines on the Tristano number "317 East 32nd" and Konitz's "Subconscious-Lee" and there's some Warsh & Levy originals too, like "Lunarcy" & "Background Music". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lennie TristanoContinuity ... CD
Jazz Records, 1958/1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare work from Lennie Tristano – some brilliant recordings made at the Half Note in 1958 and 1964, all of which feature Warne Marsh in the group on tenor sax! The first half of the set features Lennie's piano with Marsh's tenor – in a cool quartet with Henry Grimes on bass and Paul Motian on drums. Remaining tracks feature Tristano and Marsh with Lee Konitz on alto, Sonny Dallas on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – working in slightly more open territory than the other tracks. Titles include "Continuity", "My Baby", "She's Funny That Way", "Subconscious Lee", "317 East 52nd", and "Background Music". CD
