"Lapidary" forms an amusing postscript to the fifteen part "Process And Reality" sequence. This piece has been on the drawing board for a few years and here it serves to debunk the modern studio processes.
You want rarefied technological approaches ? How about this? Now the microphone is inside the soprano, Parker drums rhythm patterns upon the keys, and the horn "listens" to a record of Steve Lacy playing to a record by Ruby Braff! How much we hear of Lacy's Cryptosphere hinges upon which soprano keys are open at any given moment.
