Crate Digger’s Gold: Pete Christlieb / Warne Marsh Quintet – Apogee

September 29, 2011

I have no idea how I missed this 1978 release back in the day.  It was produced by Becker and Fagen (Steely Dan) at the height of their Aja success.  I was an emerging jazz head at the time – a regular reader of Downbeat.  This is a great jazz record.  A couple of tenor players I have never heard of blowing their brains out.

This is not jazz rock, this is not jazz lite, this is high quality post bop jazz.  I am just getting into it, but after a couple of plays I really like it. Stay tuned as I learn more about this.  I discovered this in one of emusic’s 6 degree articles (Six Degrees of Steely Dan’s Aja).
