How did I miss this?
Damn. In all the Reagan hullaballoo recently, I comepletely missed that Steve Lacy died earlier this month. Man, that's crappy. He came to Austin a couple fo times while we've been here, but I never made it to any of his shows. He played the Continetal Club at least one of those times, which is not where you'd expect to see the world finest soprano saxophonist.
I've actually only got a couple of his albums, but both of them are really good, especially Regeneration.
Live at Sweet Basil was the first Lacy record I bought, from the late Real Records in Iowa City. Once you get past his wife's voice, the whole thing is wonderful.
