CD Reviews

Great recording of Mingus tunes
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This duet album is a set of all Mingus tunes with Steve Lacy on sax, Eric Watson on piano. Lacy to my knowledge never recorded with Mingus, but did participate in many of his big band rehearsals in New York.Lacy is particularly effective on the ballads such as I X Love and Self Portrait, with his beautiful sound.They are very tight on the fast tunes, playing their lines in perfect unison.Of all the recent projects of Mingus compositions, this one stands out with grace and beauty."
