Gil Evans and Steve Lacy
I-Tunes got me to listen to "Paris Blues," by Gil Evans and Steve Lacy, for the first time in a long time. Utterly stupendous music: soprano saxophone and electric piano. Highly recommended, if only for the two Mingus tunes alone, "Orange Was A Color Of Her Dress Then Blue Silk" and a mind-boggling "Goodbye Porkpie Hat."
