Duets: Two Degrees Of Separation

Duets from Steve Lacy & Mal Waldron, Mal Waldron & Jeanne Lee, Lee & Ran Blake, Ran Blake & Anthony Braxton, Braxton & Max Roach...is there a pattern here?

On this edition of Night Lights we’ll hear duets from Steve Lacy and Mal Waldron, Mal Waldron and Jeanne Lee, Jeanne Lee and Ran Blake, Ran Blake and Anthony Braxton, Anthony Braxton and Max Roach, and Max Roach and Dizzy Gillespie. The concept for this program was rather accidental, as I was pondering a duets show and happened to notice how many of these artists appeared on other duet records. No appearances from Kevin Bacon, I promise…(I also cheated slightly; George Duvivier makes a surprise appearance on one of the “duet” tracks!)
