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 Marsh QuartetMusic For Prancing ... CD
Mode/VSOP, 1957. Used ... $8.99
One of the greatest 50s showcases for the tenor talents of Warne Marsh – a deceptively understated album that captures Warne at his most fluid and creative point! The setting is a quartet – with Ronnie Ball on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Stan Levey on drums – and Marsh is magnificent throughout, really blowing with a tone that is fresh and filled with modern ideas – yet never overdone, nor too willfully complex to lose the train of the tunes. The approach is almost Konitz-soulful – a wonderful distillation of ideas in the hands of one magical talent – and titles include "Ad Libido", "It's All Right With Me", "Playa Del Ray", "Autumn In New York", and "You Are Too Beautiful".

Anthony BraxtonFour Compositions (1973) ... LP
Denon/Columbia (Japan), 1973. Near Mint- ... $39.99
An obscure Japanese session from Braxton – very much in the mode of some of his Arista Freedom work, and recorded with a quartet that includes Masahiko Sato on piano, Keiki Midorikawa on bass, and Hozumi Tanaka on percussion. The album features four tracks notated by Braxton formulas – each dedicated to an influence on his style, such as Richard Abrams, Warne Marsh, or Laurent Goddet. LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, including insert.)

Warne MarshAll Music ... LP
Nessa, 1976. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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
(Original Nessa pressing. Cover has a small spot of tape.)

✨✧ Dick MorrisseyIt's Morrissey Man! ... CD
Redial/EmArcy (UK), 1961. Used ... $7.99
The brilliant debut LP of British tenorist Dick Morrissey – one of England's strongest players of the 60s, as you'll hear in this crackling set! The album features Morrissey working in a quartet – playing the tenor in a manner that's got all the liveliness and warmth of a player like Ronnie Scott or Tubby Hayes, but which also has a slightly angular quality in the tone, almost in the mode of some of the Tristano-ites, especially Warne Marsh. The writing is very inventive – and the tracks have a confident driving tone that's quite refreshing all the way through. Titles include "A Bench In The Park", "Sanctity", "Mildew", "Happy Feet", "Jellyroll", and "Gurney Was Here". CD
(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly. Out of print.)

✨✧ Warne MarshRelease Record – Send Tape – Warne ... LP
Wave (UK), 1959/1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare set from tenorist Warne Marsh – and one that we'd easily rank right up there with some of his better-known albums of the 50s! The tracks were recorded by bassist Peter Ind – who's also a member of the quartet here – with a tremendous ear for Warne's sublime tone on tenor – and the way he glides effortlessly with the rest of the group. Ind's bass is wonderful – every bit as great as on his 50s recordings with Lee Konitz – and the rest of the group features Ronnie Ball on piano and Dick Scott on drums. Titles include "Marshlight", "Commentary", "Coolhouse", "Foreground Music", and "Happening" LP, Vinyl record album
