Mark Turner Meets Gary Foster (2019)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


(2-CD set) This live concert from 2003 brings together four giants in jazz for an evening of tribute to Lee Konitz, Warne Marsh and Lennie Tristano. Most of the music is seldom heard today and comes from a vibrant era when modern innovations were changing the way jazz was played. Mark Turner’s tenor sax and Gary Foster’s alto sax carry the melodies with no chordal instruments, relying purely on the rhythmic backing of Putter Smith’s bass and Joe La Barbara’s drums. It is spontaneity on the highest level filled with humor and joyful interactions.
