here's an interesting ,generally fine and pretty free performance recorded by Lacy's regular group during a brief visit to Portugal in 1972.
this finds Irene Aebi sticking to cello throughout, as well as twiddling the knobs of a shortwave radio MEV style, steve Potts's playing is probably what makes this a treasure for me.
he's always good value and here he particularly tears it up.
the sound quality though very listenable is far from being pristine.
nice to hear a group version of cloudy, something lacy recorded to wondrous effect a few times , most notably on quark/emanems live at the chene noir from the same year.
this was broadcast on the portugese radio show cinqo minutas de jazz, and has also appeared on cd under that name.
this rip is taken from the 1996 strauss cd.. which appears to have been on the market for only a short time.
sorry about the lack of scans and notes.. my scanner is broken.
