AllMusic Review by

Soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy and pianist Mal Waldron have recorded together in a variety of settings through the years, including several duet records. For this set of duos, they stretch out on Waldron's "Hooray for Herbie," Lacy's "Herbe de L'Oubli" and Thelonious Monk's "Epistrophy." Lacy's thoughtful improvising fits well with Waldron's brooding chord voicings on the lesser-known Hat Art release.
