TAO The music of Steve Lacy: Andrea Centazzo, a legendary percussionist, composer, and one of the pioneers of European Free Improvisation, presents a special series of concerts and workshops dedicated to the music of his mentor Steve Lacy.
Lacy became known in the 1950s as Cecil Taylor’s saxophonist and as the first artist to record an album of Thelonious Monk compositions, besides Monk himself. Over the next four decades, he created a huge body of work, including dozens of albums and hundreds of compositions, influenced by Monk, Duke Ellington, modern poetry, and his unprecedented mastery of the soprano saxophone.
Lacy and Centazzo’s late 1970s collaboration produced the classic LPs Clangs and Trio Live (with Kent Carter), both newly reissued on vinyl, plus several archival concert recordings available on CD from Centazzo’s label ICTUS.
For this project Centazzo is joined by the members of his primary working band The West Coast Chamber Jazz Trio: flutist Ellen Burr and bassist Jeff Schwartz. Since 2016 this group has toured extensively in California and Italy and recorded LA Strictly Confidential for Ictus.
Each member is experienced in jazz, free improvisation, and contemporary classical music and as a teacher or scholar of creative music.
This project is available for concerts, workshops, and lecture/demonstrations in California and in Europe in July 2022
