    Yeah, Lacy had a great sound. His discography is huge going back to the 1950s. I don't listen to much of the early stuff. I have the two Soul Note box sets which total 15 albums. You might want try the first one. It includes two duo albums with Mal Waldron, and they're both great. There's also a great trio album in that box called The Window. And some solo soprano sax albums. The second box features larger ensembles.

    The out of print Novus albums including Momentum, Anthem, Live At Sweet Basil, and The Door feature his long running sextet with alto player Steve Potts, and the great French bassist Jean-Jaques Avenel. They're worth picking up if you can find inexpensive copies. The first tune on Momentum called The Bath is one of my favorites. Give it a listen if you can find it online.

    One other album I'll mention is the beautiful duo album Paris Blues, with Gil Evans. Here's the opening number which is a Mingus tune.

    And here's a documentary on the man.

    Thanks for the documentary. Though I could find only up to part 3, it was very interesting to know the influences on him (Bechet, Taylor, Gil Evans, Monk) and the history of his playing. And the music with Gil Evans is wonderful. I really like that Mingus tune played by Motian, which has the similar feeling of the Lacy/Evans version. I ordered the box set.

    I picked up these two CDs at a local store last Sunday. I'm happy to say that they are both excellent, and the sound is great as well. Bass On Top was recorded in '57 and it's in stereo. It features some great sounding bowed bass, and Kenny Burrell is on guitar, and Hank Jones on piano. Art Taylor is the drummer.

    The quintet album I bought used and it's the old Connoisseur Edition which sounds really good. I'm not sure how the current RVG edition sounds. There's also a low priced Japanese edition being released on July 1st that can be found at CD Japan. In fact, that's the place to buy jazz CDs that are not available domestically. Don't get ripped off at Amazon paying 25-30 dollars.

    I'm about to write a little series on my blog about the Jazz Messengers and their spin-offs, and am starting with this great album:

    Just heard the sad news about Ornette Coleman, one of my favourite saxophonists along with Albert Ayler and Eric Dolphy. Currently listening to one of his many great records, 1960's Free Jazz.

    RIP Ornette. Love his Atlantic output and I'll play the lot this weekend in tribute (apart from the one album I don't have - Ornette!).

    I'd listened to precious little jazz apart from hard bop before being introduced to Coleman's This Is Our Music and I was immediately hooked by the material's slithery qualities - the absence of piano to anchor things really allowed the music to breathe.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    It's sad news. He was a truly original musician who had one of the most beautiful saxophone tones.

    How do people on here view his venture into classical music? Here's what I'm talking about:

    Ornette was a true original who gave his all regardless of what genre he embraced. His classical stuff was no different. Forms and Sounds is particularly good and so Ornettian, if that is a word! But all fans will know what I mean.

But all fans will know what I mean. To me his classical stuff sounded very Ivesian with hints of Copland here and there.

    I seem to have posted the edited version separately. Sorry folks.
