If that is the case, given his enormous achievements, how much of a chance is there to revive the reputation of one of his most brilliant students, tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh? Safford Chamberlain, a college English teacher and one time student of Marsh, has certainly given it a good shot in his biography of Marsh, An Unsung Cat.

And, happily, a companion CD has been issued on Storyville with the same name. Both the book and CD are arranged in chronological order. Marsh was born in to a well-to-do Los Angeles family.
