This is very gentle and beautiful stuff, should appeal to a wide range of tastes. All-star line-up, and the Irene-haters don't have to work themselves into a lather!

trane said...

Terrific!, thanks a lot

john said...

I've been enjoying 'Voices', posted earlier, and look forward to this one. Thanks especially for this full double-cd version.

SlimStew said...

Thanks-I've been looking for this for awhile. What a team on paper-can't wait to hear it.

glmlr said...

Thank you very much Onx. I had only the single CD version of this.

roberto t. said...

too good to be true, many thanks!

I keep wondering about why Lacy tunes have very short titles, usually just one word. Any ideas?

glmlr said...

K: Because he was a man who didn't screw around with words. He knew exactly which ones he wanted to use. I met him once, and I was struck by just how coolly articulate he was. And always with a cunning touch of humour. And a twinkle in the eye! He was the last man who would use those ugly, brain-dead, noise-makers & space-fillers " … you know…" … I mean …".

glmlr. I also met him once. My friend asked him for his autograph. He started writing 'From Steve Lacy to . . .' and asked her for her name. She replied with a big grin, 'Venus'. Without pausing, he finished 'From Steve Lacy to Venus De Smilo'.

Sharp or what!

Also, thank you Onxidib, this is lovely stuff.

I have a DVD about Lacy which I believe was taken from an earlier video tape. Apart from music clips, it also has interviews. I'm definitely going to watch it again to see if I get the same impression.

Andrew said...

Another thanks here, this is superb music.

Newmill Mark said...

What a beauty, thanks so much

Having gotten a hold of this only recently, I'm absolutely loving it. Lacy, Cherry, Holland are each one-in-a-million, to be sure, but Togashi's subtle, emotive playing is really something rare and special.
