5.0 out of 5 stars Wailing Weals and Woes 13 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD
Before I get carried away and lull you into buying this CD, you should be aware that Emanem have recently withdrawn this CD as it has now been superseded by two discs with additional material on each, The Sun (1967-1973) - Steve lacy and Avignon and After Vol.1 (1972/1974) - Steve Lacy.

Possibly the reason for the splitting of the original Weal and Woe is the only possible downfall that the original had - the fact that it was essentially two different albums. The first half consists of Lacy playing solo at Avignon and the second half is A quintet piece, the anti-war piece 'The Woe'. With some albums, the splitting of a disk into two sections made up of seemingly disparate material can give an impression of schizophrenia. But this album has never made me feel that way, which is a credit not just to the integrity of the performances but also to Martin Davidson's production values.

The two parts of the album are clearly distinct from one another but the programming of the Avignon solo pieces first means that they act as something of a prelude to 'The Woe'. in these 8 pieces, Lacy explores some of the wider techniques of saxophone sound that became very much his own. Along with the other key solo material that was released by Emanem, Lacy's 'Hooky' Hooky: Solo in Montreal 1976, this is amongst his most accessible solo performances and you can clearly hear what he is trying to explore.
