Rent, The (Thomson / Neal / Fraser/ Brenders / Hood): Musique de Steve Lacy (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    

"The Rent: Musique de Steve Lacy is the outcome of about two years of research and regular performance by this Toronto-based quintet. Starting in the late 1950s, Steve Lacy used his intensive research into the then-neglected compositional oeuvre of Thelonious Monk as a foundation on which to base a lifetime of thoroughly original music-making. The Rent approaches Lacy's wonderful and underappreciated compositional legacy with the same spirit. Lacy's songs are based on texts by wonderful poets from various places and eras, and have a special place in our repertoire as sung by Susanna Hood. Legendary trombonist Roswell Rudd, an important colleague of Lacy's for over forty years says, "The Rent has done the world a solid favor by rendering a bouquet of Steve Lacy's compositions with precision, imagination and love. Thanks so much."-Ambiances Magnetiques
