Mislabeled cool jazz and judged as too academic sounding and even soulless by some critics and musicians, the post bebop work of Lennie Tristano students like Lee Konitz, Warne Marsh, Sal Mosca, and guitarist Billy Bauer brought a mellifluous and oblique introspection to jazz. This is not to say, though, that their music didn't in some ways adhere to the twin staples of jazz: swing and the blues. On this Konitz and Marsh classic from 1955, the two saxophonists do compliment the subtle rhythmic flow supplied by bassist Oscar Pettiford and drummer Kenny Clarke with fluid work of their own, but they also nicely foil it with snaking, stuttering lines and a tart tonal attack. And as far as the blues go, no one would say Konitz and Marsh were blues players per se, at least not in the more forceful and almost transcendent sense of Parker's work in the idiom, but they do deliver some fine solos here on Pettiford's slow blues "Don't Squawk." Their airy style in part grew out of Tristano's harmonically advanced and expansive appreciation of jazz, which is reflected in the disc's mix of material by Eddie Durham (one of Count Basie's swing-era arrangers), Parker, Tristano, and Marsh. Enjoyable, challenging, and certainly swinging. ~ Stephen Cook
