Bop? Cool Jazz? Free Jazz?

The easiest answer - yes to all three - is probably also the most correct. The tracks from the 1949 sessions with Lennie Tristano are mainline be-bop for sure, but Tristano nudges himself and tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh into grooves that could only flow toward the future, toward "free jazz" a decade later. Tristano wasn't there, on the West Coast with Warne Marsh in the sessions of the 1950s, but even within the more relaxed cool-jazz favored in LA, Tristano's intelligence can be heard in the modulations, in what classical music fans would call "development". Warne Marsh had "cool' in his DNA, of course. So did Chet Baker and Gerry Mulligan. The 'soul' you hear in their music is detached, ironic, cool as champagne on ice. Marsh was one of the constellation of jazz stars on the tenor sax of his generation, along with Lester Young, Dexter Gordon, Wardell Gray ....

.... and if you appreciate serious, instinctual, intelligent jazz, you'll want to hear Marsh try him best to 'live up' to the sublime Lennie Tristano.
