In the Jazz world, Steve Lacy is like Broadway: doesn’t fit neatly into the grid but, wherever he intersects it, magical things happen. No wonder he loved Monk and no wonder Phillip Johnston is an acolyte. From 6pm to 9pm tonight on WKCR 89.9FM and wkcr.org, Phillip and I put Steve Lacy in Deep Focus. Roswell Rudd’s trombone also contributes some open-handed wonder.
