AllMusic Review by

Ideal Bread's 2014 album, Beating the Teens: Songs of Steve Lacy, finds the exploratory jazz outfit once again paying homage to the late forward-thinking jazz saxophonist. An edgy, experimental group, Ideal Bread is actually a Lacy repertory ensemble featuring the talents of saxophonist Josh Sinton (who studied with Lacy), cornetist Kirk Knuffke, bassist Adam Hopkins, and drummer Tomas Fujiwara. Included here are 26 reinterpreted Lacy compositions.
