Azar Lawrence - Speak The Word

The comeback recording of Azar Lawrence in 2008, after many years away from the recording studio, bears mixed results. Playing the soprano saxophone in the main and a little tenor, Lawrence and his West Coast quartet play some of the vibrant modal jazz in which he staked his claim in the McCoy Tyner ensemble of the 1970s, remaining as a premier post-John Coltrane performer. There are commercial concessions and a Latin element that should not be totally unexpected for those who remember his previous efforts ...

Azar Lawrence - Prayer For My Ancestors

The two modern CDs reviewed here display a saxophonist with no less power and skill but perhaps an organically broader pallet of expression. Between Prayer for My Ancestors and Speak the Word there are beautiful ballads, lyrical bossa novas, songs sung in Spanish, songs from Africa featuring gorgeous kora (African lute) pl...
