CD Reviews

A fusion of Poetry and Jazz - A truly American masterpiece
chiavere | Somewhere in the Electronic Ether | 07/16/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This song cycle from composer/soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy is another of his works inspired by poems and words, this time by American Beat poet Robert (Bob) Creeley. It was performed only in Europe, which is a shame because it truly is an American work. Words by an American poet (Creeley), Music by an American Composer (Lacy), and the staged performance included as a centerpiece a large painting by an American modernist painter, which shifted colors with different lighting. The music shifts in the same way, from different moods and colors, from composition to improvisation -- but the grounding factor is the high quality of the music and it's performance. Get it now before it becomes unavailable forever -- only 3000 copies of this edition were made!"
