Product Description


technical comment

  • After a long tour of North America starting in summer 2003, this quintet concluded, in March 2004, by playing two concerts in Boston - most of the first one being included here. The material is five of the Beat poems featuring Irene Aebi, plus three instrumentals. After a lot of working together, this group was really both loose and together with everybody playing magnificently. Even Lacy plays superbly, so there is no need to make any allowances for his ill health. In fact, the evening sounds like a very enjoyable occasion, making this CD one of the best of the quintet's latter recordings - an appropriate farewell to a major musician.

    IRENE AEBI - voice (2, 3, 4, 6, 8)
    GEORGE LEWIS - trombone
