Warne Marsh was one of the most pure, imaginative and creative improvisers jazz has ever known. This CD comprises tracks he recorded in Copenhagen on April 21 1980 with the Kenny Drew Trio for a Danish radio broadcast and is the first authorised release of this music. Marsh, the seasoned veteran of a thousand jam sessions, never had the least difficulty in coming to terms with a new challenge and the four musicians functioned together like a regular unit.
Pianist Kenny Drew was an established member of the Danish community and had taken up residence in Copenhagen in 1962. Drummer Aage Tanggaard has frequently worked with pianist Duke Jordan and Bo Stief is one of Denmark’s best known bass players whose credits include working with Lockjaw Davis and Ben Webster – he is probably the only musician to have recorded with both Wild Bill Davison and Miles Davis.
