Reflections: Steve Lacy Plays Thelonious Monk (Lp)
Label: Jeanne Dielman
Out of stock
Jeanne Dielman presents a reissue of Steve Lacy's Reflections, originally released on New Jazz in 1959. The legendary reeds-man Steve Lacy takes on the brilliant compositions of Thelonious Monk. Reflections is a glorious quartet session with Lacy on soprano sax, accompanied by the great Mal Waldron on piano, as worthy a pianist to take on the tunes of Monk as one could imagine, along with Buell Neidlinger on bass, and the amazing Elvin Jones on the trap kit. Though it's only Lacy's second recording as a leader, his maturity and range are well on display here as he re-imagines seven of Monk's beautiful tunes as his own.
