Two veteran avant-gardists get together for a deceptively casual session and wind up with a contemporary jazz masterpiece--one reason being that Gil Evans and Steve Lacy were shrewd enough to choose superior tunes by Mingus (four pieces!) and Duke ("Paris Blues") instead of relying on a few perfunctory heads to noodle away on. Also, the special timbral blend of electric piano and soprano sax (Lacy is still the greatest player since Bechet) lends the sound a hip modern sheen, striking even in 1987. PARIS BLUES is just more proof, if any was needed, that these two cats just never stopped growing.
