Lacy, Steve / Steve Potts: Tips (Corbett vs. Dempsey)

Label: Corbett vs. Dempsey    
Released in: USA    

"Soprano saxophonist Lacy wrote the suite of tunes for Tips to feature the aphorisms of painter Georges Braque, as sung by Irene Aebi. Together with his right-hand-man, alto saxophonist Potts, he and Aebi recorded these 14 anthemic tracks in Paris in 1979, and the young hat Hut label issued them on a now-rare LP. The music allowed Lacy to extend and deepen his longstanding interest in setting text to music, and at the same time it provided a perfect context for extrapolated duets with Potts, whose dedication to Lacy over twenty years of collaboration somewhat overshadowed his own creative output. This CD is the first release of Lacy's full hat Hut oeuvre, mastered from the original tapes, which CvsD acquired last year."-Corbett Vs. Dempsey

"Georges Braque (1882-1963) was a major 20th-century French painter, collagist, draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor. His most important contributions to the history of art were in his alliance with Fauvism from 1906, and the role he played in the development of Cubism. Braque's work between 1908 and 1912 is closely associated with that of his colleague Pablo Picasso. Their respective Cubist works were indistinguishable for many years, yet the quiet nature of Braque was partially eclipsed by the fame and notoriety of Picasso."-Wikipedia
