Muze PNote CONCEPTION collects seven 1949-51 sessions by some of the musicians who were transforming bop into cool jazz. Half the album features Konitz-led sessions, with the leading alto player of his day (backed with Davis and drummer Max Roach) setting cerebral, abstract interpretations of standards like "Indian Summer" alongside Konitz's fluid original "Hibeck" and his gorgeously lyrical "Duet for Saxophone and Guitar." This is essential music that sounds as forward-looking today as it must have at the time.
Muze PNote The album's second half features two tracks apiece by Davis, Getz and Mulligan. "Conception" and "My Old Flame" find Davis edging from his Nonet's cool sophistication into the earthier feel of his later Prestige sides, with then-unknown Sonny Rollins contributing some Bird-like licks. Getz's lovely, intimate quartet sessions sit somewhat uneasily beside Mulligan's large bands, but the disparity only emphasizes the varied directions in which these four exceptional talents were expanding contemporary jazz.
