A moment in an afternoon, Sunday at
the Egg Farm (Japan),well known saxophonist extraordinare, Steve Lacy
bounces his introverted sound off of wooden walls for a small live audience,
mellow, gracefully reminiscent of his first inspiration in jazz, the Duke
Ellington Band. This is a sequence in which he experiments with
techniques, subtle polytones, growls, smears and kisses, enhancing the
stretched melodies of the predecessor. After the break, there are six
original Lacy compositions:
Art, Gospel, On a Midnite Kick, Wave Lover, The Breath, and Traces.
The music is personal, ambient, stream of consciousness alive in the moment.
