This indispensable DVD offers one of the most interesting films ever made about a modern experimental jazz pioneering. The star is Steve Lacy, the soprano sax innovator, talking about his musical concepts and his major influences from Sidney Bechet to John Coltrane, Cecil Taylor, Gil Evans and Thelonious Monk, who showed him the way to lift the bandstand. The film presents clips of all these artists who delineates the human inspirations behind Lacy's processing of sly wit, precise abstraction, and mystical method. He's revealed as a sort of post-modern modernist whose present music can sing while it's laughing at itself crying. In performance, Irene Aebi's vocals and Lacy's sextet featuring Steve Potts on alto sax, Bobby Few on piano, Jean-Jacques Avenel on bass, and Oliver Johnson on drums. Lacy's pivotal position in modern jazz history has never shone more clearly than it does in this brilliant film realized by Peter Bull.
