They Say All Music Guide

Recorded just three months before arranger/pianist Gil Evans’s death, this duet album teams Evans with the great soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy. In truth, Evans’s playing here is generally little more than melody statements and comping behind Lacy and, although the soprano is in top form, little of significance occurs. The duo performs lengthy versions of three Charles Mingus tunes, Duke Ellington’s “Paris Blues” and Lacy’s “Esteem.” Evans was never a masterful keyboardist and clearly was not in Lacy’s league as a player, so this CD is of greater interest from a historical standpoint than musical. – Scott Yanow
