This is Steve Lacy's album of Hat Hut in 1980s. This is rather big work in two vinyls. Although I do not think this is very innovative or very new work in Steve Lacy's various opus, very gay, easy to listen (even non free jazz music lover would love this), but various aspects of Steve's music are picked up and shown like“Prospectus.
And I admire excellence of George Lewis as trombone player. As a music creator and composer, I am not so fond of his abstract, well-calculated and experimental style of works, which takes similar style of Roscoe Mitchel but not as vital as him, and sounds like a certain kind of modern classic music. Difficult to imagine what is called "Jazz music". But, as trombone player, he has nice tone and bright phrases with unbelievable virtuous technical.
This file is converted from casset tape. I think sound quality is affordable for enjoying in ordinal level music player.
