in their own words - “Steve Lacy is one of the most idiosyncratic composers in what we call free jazz,” states Josh Sinton. “People who love free music may initially have a hard time coming to terms with his work, because they aren’t ready for the repetition and traditional rigor he brought to his pieces.”
Transmit is the second such album from the quartet and the group will be performing in NYC on
June 6 (Sun) - Live Studio Event @ 58N6 Media Labs 8 p.m.
June 13 (Sun) - Undead Jazzfest @ Kenny's Castaways 6:40 p.m.
Sinton says it best - “I’m still mystified by Lacy’s approach,” Sinton muses. “Some of his writing has the repetitive quality of a nursery rhyme, some of it is more akin to Webern or other atonal composers. I’d watch Steve respond to questions about his compositional method by playing the compositions, and I am also coming to terms with the music by playing it.”
