Steve Lacy - Straws


Steve Lacy is someone that I'm just starting to get into in a major way. This and Stabs are currently my favorites. The great thing about Lacy is that even though he's a very progressive player, he's not relying purely on skronk.

It's hard to think of a sax player with better handle on both technique and playing from his heart.


  1. Have you heard Forest and the Zoo? I never had until ESP just reissued it and I really dig the hell out of it, two extended quartet pieces where he really lets his imagination run wild.

  3. I totally again about the forest and the zoo. That's a fantastic record. hrmm...
