2016 Japanese CD reissue.
Warne Marsh told writer Nat Hentoff "the big thing I got from Lennie Tristano was the feeling that if music was worth that much to him, it could mean that much to me to play only what I wanted to play”. The Storyville catalogue is rich in the recorded work of Warne Marsh but the highligt certainly is "Body And Soul", a tune with strong jazz tenor links. Here Marsh fashions a masterly improvisation over the harmonies, creating melodic statements of great richness for two choruses. Music such as this is the very essence of jazz; four men united in the creation of spontaneously creative music after what must have been only a short time available for rehearsal. The result speaks for itself.
