Lacy, Steve / Heward, John
Recessional (for Oliver Johnson)

Lacy, Steve / Heward, John: Recessional (for Oliver Johnson) (Mode Records)
Label: Mode Records    
Released in: USA    

"This live concert is perhaps one of the last recordings from soprano saxophone legend Steve Lacy. Lacy and percussionist John Heward first met in Paris in 1975. Though they remained in regular contact through the years, they did not actually play together until this concert in Montreal on 20 June 2003. Two months later Lacy was diagnosed with cancer, and died in June 2004. Lacy suggested to Heward that he wanted to end this improvisation with the motif Recessional for Oliver Johnson, as a tribute to Lacy's long-time drummer. The motif appears toward the end of this set-long piece, and lasts until its conclusion."-Mode
