Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy(1934-2004) & pianist Mal Waldron(1926-2003) formed a long-time musical partnership and this duo album recorded in Paris on July 12/13, 1990 is one of their finest collaborations.
The nine memorable tracks include 2 Lacy originals, one from Waldron and 6 jazz standards by Herbie Nichols, Tadd Dameron, Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington & Sidney Bechet.
Lacy & Waldron display an astonishing level of empathy and highlights are Dameron's 'Hot House', Monk's 'Friday The 13th'(recorded on that day!), Bechet's 'Petite Fleur' & Waldron's 'Snake Out'. Lacy & Waldron perform solo on 'Retreat' & 'Mistral Breeze' respectively.
Quite rightly listed in Tom Moon's '1000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die', this marvellous but little-known album is well worth searching for.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lacy & Waldron Duet proves the French aren't 'always wrong' 18 Aug 2006
By Brian Schiff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jazz pianist Mal Waldron and soprano sax player Steve Lacy did a lot of playing in France(so,I guess the French deserve some credit) put together this very easy listening cd composed of standards that haven't been played to death.Both men were heavily influenced by the off beat pianist Thelonious Monk and play a Monk composition 'Friday the 13th' beautifully.Lacy,who won a MacArthur grant was credited with bringing the soprano sax back into use,which Sidney Bechet popularized-and include a great

Bechet composition 'Petite Fleurs'.And, the Tadd Dameron classic 'Hot House' alone is worth the price of the cd.
