Steve Lacy (finally?) in the Sarabandas authorized hall of fame...
All the material has been previously released: 1-2-3-4-5 in Soprano Sax (recorded 1/11/57), 6-7 in Evidence (recorded 14/11/61) and 8-9-10 in Schools Days (recorded live in March 1963).
Maybe Lacy was already a giant at 27 (in 1961), maybe not - but we do not understand the purpose of that kind of compilation. Once you've heard the 2 or 3 pieces "selected" from Evidence or School Days, anyhow, you'll probably want to hear the rest of these albums...
