Steve Lacy with his "classical" and enduring band. An astonishing group with Potts, Aeby and Avenel. In my opinion one of the best groups of the eighties. In 1983 Steve Lacy was still at the top of his form and with this same sextet recorded that masterpiece called Songs.

Enjoy the music!

I had this new graphic design program and enjoyed myself thinking to this fake album cover. The shot was taken by me in the court of a marvellous ancient villa in northern Italy just before a marvellous concert given by Roberto Ottaviano (sop, sax) and Han Bennink (drums). I thought this, as the whole concert by the way, could be a fine homage to Mr. Steve Lacy.

LYM, many thanks. Will there be mp3 to follow or will this be a FLAC only post?

LYM said...

@ anonimous and anyone interested here. It will be a FLAC post only as any posted before by me here or elsewhere.
It's really easy and fast to convert FLAC to mp3 format.

Many thanks LYM - Fantastic.
And a great 'album cover' you did there!
Thanks for explaining - I didn't *think* that grass looked German...

LYM said...

thanks for the appreciation and kindness!
Perhaps "Dutch" grass? Could it be?
