Two Days in the Life Of... Review

by Scott Yanow

This was one of tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh's last records. Fortunately his musical talents were unimpaired and he sounds in prime form. A pianoless quartet (consisting of guitarist Ron Eschete, bassist Jim Hughart and drummer Sherman Ferguson) fits in with Marsh's music very well (Eschete has several excellent solos), mostly performing thinly-disguised standards. Other than the brief playing time (under 40 minutes) and the lack of liner notes, there are no viable criticisms of this CD, for Warne Marsh, just six months before his death, was still in top form and quite distinctive.
