Personnel: Lee Konitz (alto saxophone); Warne Marsh (tenor saxophone); Sal Mosca, Ronnie Ball (piano); Billy Bauer (guitar); Oscar Pettiford (bass); Kenny Clarke (drums). Recorded at East Coast Studios, New York, New York on June 15 & 21, 1956. Originally released on Atlantic (1217). Includes liner notes by Barry Ulanov. WITH WAYNE MARSH is a 1950s collaboration between the sax players Lee Konitz and Wayne Marsh. Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh started playing duo saxophone lines together with their teacher and mentor Lennie Tristano starting in the late '40s. Konitz went on to have the more active career though he was perhaps a little too abstract a musician to achieve the commercial success of a Paul Desmond. Marsh's musical concept is even more unusual--he has just about the driest reed sound outside of Anthony Braxton. The two saxophone brothers met up a few other times but this 1956 Atlantic album is their peak together and a highlight in Konitz's extensive discography. Guitarist Billy Bauer (another Tristano alumnus) provides requisite harmonic support on lively explorations of "Topsy," "I Can't Get Started," and Miles Davis's bebop classic "Donna Lee."
