Recorded during a Supersax tour. "All Music" is a straightahead blowing date from 1976 featuring Marsh backed by a redoubtable rhythm section. Tunes like Tristano’s "317 E. 32nd" and Lee Konitz’s "Subconscious-Lee" burn like rice paper dipped in lighter fluid. Both Levy and Hanna are top-drawer bop stylists, and Marsh is one of the all-time greats at the top of his game. Definitely not just for Tristo-philes or Marsh completists."- Chris Kelse, JAZZ TIMES
"In the 1970s Warne Marsh gained renewed exposure as a member of Supersax, a large ensemble which played orchestral arrangements of Charlie Parker solos; Marsh also recorded one of his most celebrated albums during this period, "All Music", with the Supersax rhythm section". - ALL ABOUT JAZZ
-The mid-1970s were a prime time for tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh and this 1976 studio session is one of his best dates from this portion of his career. Leading a quartet with pianist Lou Levy, bassist Fred Atwood and drummer Jake Hanna, Marsh’s sophisticated solo work shines no matter what the setting, be it his brisk bop vehicle "I Have a Good One For You," a warm rendition of a standard like "Easy Living" or Levy’s slow, engaging blues "On Purpose." The leader also revisits familiar territory with a wild take of Lennie Tristano’s "317 East 32nd" (itself based on the standard "Out of Nowhere" and also tackling frequent saxophone partner Lee Konitz’s "Subconscious-Lee" (based on "What is This Thing Called Love"). Recorded for the Nessa label, this excellent LP will be somewhat difficult to acquire." - Ken Dryden, ALL MUSIC GUIDE
