Tristano Marsh Konitz School Burns

(5 out of 5 stars)
"If you love Lennie Tristano or his two most important disciples, Warne Marsh and Lee Konitz, then this album will interest you.
Coruthers and Popkin are, after Sal Mosca, the next two most important, and interesting of the Tristano school.
Popkin sounds like a modern-day Lester Young, that luscious tone, with the complex lines and harmonics of Warne Marsh. A New York version of the Warne sound. Coruthers has that Tristano intensity, but in a Queenly Regaly incarnation.
She is the Eygptian Goddes of the Tristano Piano.
Ably assisted by Tristano's daughter Carol, who provides a rhythmic liquidity. You wont tire of this album, i have had mine for 15 years and i listen to it at least once per season.
Cameron Brown is a very warm toned bassist, in the tradition of the best be-bop bassists, like Russel or Pettiford"
