"Let Lacy describe his own: 'In the beginning, people called it "free jazz". Then it was necessary to structure this music, it wasn't free anymore. So they started to call it "post free" and now they talk about "poly free"...All of this is kind of funny to me. I call it "high jazz." It may be a little snobbish but it's pretty nice."

“...fast forward through the 1970s, a period in which Lacy was quite active but which is not as well represented on CD today. This 1985 date is special for its emphasis on poetry: each composition is inspired by a particular poem, a recurring theme in Lacy's later work. The classic sextet of Lacy, fellow saxman Steve Potts, Irene Aebi (Lacy's wife) on violin and voice, pianist Bobby Few, bassist Jean-Jacques Avenel, and drummer Oliver Johnson.”
