Ideal Bread
Transmit: Vol. 2 of The Music of Steve Lacy

Ideal Bread: Transmit: Vol. 2 of The Music of Steve Lacy (Cuneiform)
Label: Cuneiform    
Released in: USA    

"Ideal Bread was started to perform the idiosyncratic (and underplayed) compositions of Steve Lacy. Using these pieces as a starting point, the group has blossomed into a dynamic and charismatic band. They demonstrate respect for Lacy's work by investigating its compositional implications every time they step up to play. Ideal Bread's music is an exciting demonstration of the possibilities of interpretation and improvisation; this is 'free-bop' at its very best!

If anyone deserves such a project, it is soprano saxophone innovator Steve Lacy (1930-2004). He was an integral component of Cecil Taylor's first unit, starting in 1955 and he would then go on to liberate the soprano saxophone and reform the landscape of composition in improvised music."-Cuneiform Records

"Like a baker makes his bread, I make music...If I make the same bread tomorrow, that bores me...I have to remake it, I have to do better...I'm always looking for...the ideal bread." - Steve Lacy, April, 1976
