✨✧ Warne Marsh QuartetMusic For Prancing ... CD
Mode/VSOP, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Charles Lloyd/Warne MarshFlowering Of The Original Charles Lloyd Quartet/Warne Marsh ... CD
Collectables/Atlantic, Late 50s/1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another strange pairing of rare Atlantic jazz albums – but at a nice price! The album by Charles Lloyd was originally recorded during the mid 60s, when his group included Keith Jarrett, Cecil McBee, and Jack DeJohnette. The approach is Lloyd's original spiritual modal groove, on titles like "Gypsy 66", "Wilpan's", and "Love-In". Warne Marsh is one of the few definitive recordings by this great icy tenor star – and it's nice to have it back on CD, even if it is buried on the release! The session was cut using a mix of hardbop and modernist players, including Philly Joe Jones, Paul Chambers, Ronnie Ball, and Paul Motian – and the tracks are mostly standards, taken in a beautiful way that spans a number of styles, from West Coast, to Konitz cool, to boppish. With the tracks "Excerpt", "Too Close For Comfort", "Yardbird Suite", and "Just Squeeze Me". CD
(Barcode has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Warne MarshAll Music ... CD
Nessa, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD fatures some alternate takes of the track "On Purpose", "A Time For Love", and "I Have A Good One For You". CD

✨✧ Warne MarshNe Plus Ultra ... CD
Hatology/Revelation (Switzerland), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterpiece by Warne Marsh – and proof that there was always a committed modernist lurking behind some of his more straightforward playing! The session has sort of a post-Tristano underground west coast feel (if we can make up such a heavy handed term!), and it features a piano-less quartet with Marsh on tenor, Gary Foster on alto, Dave Parlato on bass, and Terry Tirabasso on drums. Foster's playing at this point in his career is wonderful, with lots of crisy icy tones that remind us of the best Konitz recordings of the mid 50s. Tracks are long and introspective, and titles include Tristano's "Lennies Pennies" and "317 E 32nd", Konitz's "Subconscious-Lee", and the original improvisation "Touch & Go". CD
