"This is an invaluable club recording of an unusual lineup: the two Tristanoite saxophonists Lee Konitz & Warne Marsh, the great pianist Bill Evans, the bassist Jimmy Garrison & Paul Motian on drums. The gig was in fact Tristano's, but because he taught Tuesday nights Evans was asked to fill in. The recording is an amateur one, but a good one: its only oddity is that in the absence of multiple mikes, the mike is physically shifted between the saxophones and piano before & after Evans' solos, the aural effect being rather like walking around the side of the bandstand. On the other hand, the recording superbly captures Garrison & Motian, who are both in incredibly good form--rarely has a professional live recording from the 1950s caught the bass so prominently". 1994 issue.
