Steve Lacy solos in Avignon, Paris, Edmonton and Koeln 1972-1977

Steve Lacy had an interesting career that started all the way back in New Orleans bands. One of his characteristic concert format was to play solo. His music was sometimes simple like a bunch of arpeggios and sometimes very complex using multiphonics and atonal material. Martin Davidson had the great idea to release a CD of works recorded during a 5 years period in Avignon 1972 and 1974, Paris 1975, Edmonton 1076 and Köln 1977. Besides revisited standards and compositions inspired by Jazz giants like Jelly Roll Morton or Barney Bigard, Lacy plays some of his own inspired compositions.
