WARNE MARSH & LEE KONITZ
Two Not One

December 1975 was a busy month for Warne Marsh and Lee Konitz. It was Warne Marsh s first visit to Europe.
They played December 3,4 & 5 at the Montmartre in Copenhagen and came back the 27th and played yet another concert at the Montmartre. They were at Rosenberg studio December 28 and 29 for further recordings. All dates were recorded and the result can be heard on this 4 CD box.
It is amazing music from the two Lennie Tristano pupils .
They played with the Danish musicians Ole Kock Hansen (p) Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen (b) and Alex Riel (dr) and for the later sessions with Dave Cliff (g) Peter Ind (b)
And Alan Lewitt (dr)

Marsh and Konitz sound clear and vibrant, with Pedersen a strong complement on bass, in this live in Europe 1975 compilation. They're creative and expressive, both together and apart. Check out the haunting You Don't Know What Love Is, the counterpoint on Darn That Dream, what Marsh does with Parker's Confirmation, and Pedersen's adventurous solos. Other highlights include Old Folks, Foolin' Myself, and I Should Care.

Crisp, clean recording of this outstanding stand at Copenhagen's legendary Jazzhus Montmartre and a great value for the price. Highly recommended!

For many years I wanted to buy Warne Marsh's five CDs from December 1975 when he played with Lee Konitz at the Montmarte Club in Copenhagen (three volumes) and his studio sessions without Konitz. Collective they ran $130 until recently, when they could be had for $80--if only they were all available at the same time. What "Two Not One" does is collect all five in four CDs for a mere $25, laying down the music in chronological order from December 3, 4, 5, and 27 at the club to December 28 and 29 at Rosenburg Studio.

All 48 cuts and 5 hours of the music exceed my expectations. These Lennie Tristano disciples are master improvisers--technically prodigious and lyrically peerless. What I find most stunning are their inventive, raw opening and closing harmonies in tandem, sudden breaks into transcendent solos, and wildly stratospheric dialogues, sometime converging, sometimes a note ahead or behind the other to punctuate a lilting phrase. They continually startle the imagination.

The rhythm sections are outstanding as well. They drive alternately hard and understated but always swinging beats. They are Ole Kock Hansen (piano), Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen (bass), and Alex Riel (drums) on December 3 and 4, with Riel replaced by Svend Norregard on the 5th; Dave Cliff (guitar), Peter Ind (bass), and Alan Lewitt (drums) on the 27th. The studio sessions include a quartet (Marsh, Cliff, Pedersen, and Lewitt) on the 28th, and a trio (without Cliff) on the 29th.

The liner notes by Alun Morgan make for excellent reading to complement Storyville's masterpiece collection. This box set is a prized possession, one I consider part of the soundtrack of my life.

i have practically all the Warne Marsh availalbe, and this stuff just blows me away; especially the duo stuff w/Lee Konitz. It is so far out for them, at times it sounds almost like Ornette Coleman in its tone and harmonic freedom. The piano is fantastic, very Bud Powell, and the whole thing is very well recorded, the bass is not too loud as it is on some other recordings w/this particular bassist.

I could live without the guitarist, Peter Ind's student, but that is a small complaint. I never could stand Billy Bauer, either.

Thanks , Storyville.

To state the obvious, this could have been called "One and a Half Not One," since Konitz is absent on 23 of the 48 tracks. That said, it's a marvelous collection, much better recorded than a Marsh session like "The Big Two." I've finally appreciated Whitney Balliett's remark that Marsh in full flight can sound like a barnyard fowl swatted by a broom.
