This 1962 recording is one of the prize items of the free-jazz movement as it flowered in California. It teams flutist Prince Lasha and alto saxophonist Sonny Simmons, who cowrote all the songs and play with an esprit de duo that reflects their long-term partnership. Lasha, who also played saxophone, was a childhood friend of Ornette Coleman and became part of his circle in Los Angeles. Simmons, a Louisiana native who grew up in Oakland, came under Coleman’s influence while honing his own terse, lyrically heated style. Though the overall sound of The Cry! very much proceeds from Ornette’s harmolodic “new thing” (while absorbing earlier styles ranging from Ellington ‘exotica’ to Waller ‘erotica’) it’s a racier vehicle that takes hairier turns. Propelled by the clean and steady dual basses of Gary Peacock and Mark Proctor (on three tracks, Peacock goes it alone), Lasha and Simmons harmonize with as much zip and warmth as they put into their solos. (Lloyd Sachs)
