Released: Jan 2013
Label: Intakt Records
The veteran Black Artists Group and World Saxophone Quartet alto master reunites a trio that gelled on For a Little Dancin', and also adds Nils Wogram on trombone; the newcomer contributes the New Orleans-flavored "Listen to Your Woman" and solos memorably on Lake's "Sketch 4 Four." The title track sets the tone: A tune may start off quietly, and progress on to some spare bass or drum motifs, but before it's over, you're likely to hear some spitfire soloing grounded in the avant-garde as well as the blues. Add this concise but varied title to Lake's legacy.
