Warne Marsh/Lee Konitz: Jazz Exchange, Vol. 2: Live At The Montmartre Club

Warne Marsh and Lee Konitz were the best known saxmen employed by the risk- taking Lennie Tristano, and as strong a rapport as they enjoyed, they really didn’t play together as often or as consistently over the years as some might think. The two were reunited with impressive results on this live Copenhagen date from 1975, which first came out on the Danish Storyville label and has been reissued on a great-sounding gold audiophile CD by Mobile Fidelity. Marsh’s tenor and Konitz’s alto could interact and wrap around each other in a most appealing and cohesive way, and that’s exactly what happens on Konitz’s material (including "Sound-Lee" and "317 East 32nd Street") as well as the standard "Darn That Dream" and the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. The cool- toned yet expressive saxmen are well served by a rhythm section comprising British guitarist Dave Cliff, bassist Peter Ind and drummer Alan Levitt.
