Description

Straight Horn of Steve Lacy on LP

The only thing "straight" about Steve Lacy's horn is it's shape, as the soprano sax here is used in some extremely inventive and modern ways, especially for the date of the session. We don't think we're going out on a limb to say Lacy is one of the foremost melodic improvisors of his time, and easily one of the most talented soprano players too - and his early date as a leader shows both his forward looking involvement with the avant garde (he'd played with Cecil Taylor just before this date and does a couple of his compositions here) and a career-long fascination with Thelonious Monk. Although the group here is piano-less there's a definite Monk-like edge to many of the numbers, carried off especially by the sharp turns in Lacy's horn! 180 gram vinyl.
