Steve Lacy's Quartet live in Paris, 1986.,
This review is from: Morning Joy (Audio CD)
This excellent quartet album was recorded by Radio France live at the Sunset club, Paris on February 19, 1986 with soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy(1934-2004), Steve Potts(alto & soprano sax); Jean-Jacques Avenel(bass) & Oliver Johnson(drums).
The seven lengthy tracks include four Lacy originals and three Thelonious Monk compositions.
Lacy & Potts complement one another beautifully and seem inspired by the superb rhythm section.
The music on this atmospheric 76-minute live recording has tremendous drive and vitality and is an ideal introduction to Steve Lacy's work. It's a pity that the CD is currently so hard to find.
