Lacy Five, Steve: The Way [2 CDs] (Hatology)
Label: Hatology    
Released in: Switzerland    

"The Way is a long story. Based on an old Chinese text, attributed to Lao-Tzu, it reached me 2000 years later, in New York, in Witter Bynner's sing-song version: The Tao Teh Ching (published by Capricorn Books). That was 1959. By '67 I had already set the melody of "The Way" for Irène and was mulling over the other verses. The rest of the pieces were written in the late sixties. By the early seventies began the elaboration and realization of this music, known as Tao, which is still going on. By now, after hundreds of performances of this cycle (in solo, duo, quintet, orchestra, with dancers, electronics, etc.), the shape and sound is coming clear and the whole work seems destined to become "standard" one day. New wings for old words - so be it."-Steve Lacy
