heres the next item in our ongoing lacy series
a long out of print,very free 1966 session recorded in milan.
very similar conceptualy to lacy's classic ESP disc 'forrest and the zoo' of the same year.
same front line different rythm section.
enrico rava sounding like a mutant cross of chet baker with don cherry.
hardly any of lacys stuff from this period seems to be available with the sole parenial exeptions being,forrest and the zoo and ,moon.
perhaps lacy's just a little to dry and eccentric, why dig up these old jems to reissue when you can repackage yet more live coltrane and milk it to the last drop.
