Description

At Copenhagen’s “Club Montmartre”, scene of many “live” recordings, a trio of sympathetic Danish jazzmen backed the two American saxophonists. With little rehearsal time available the performances tended to comprise theme statements followed by saxophone solos, piano and bass solos, a couple of choruses of eights with the drummer and a return to the theme. But within that seemingly orthodox format Konitz and Marsh demonstrated the ease with which they could create entirely fresh lines on top of familiar chord progressions.
