Joseph Bowie and Oliver Lake’s Live at A Space 1976 album cover. JOSEPH BOWIE & OLIVER LAKE Live at ‘A Space’ 1976 (Sackville/Delmark). OLIVER LAKE FEATURING FLUX QUARTET Right Up On (Passin’ Thru). In his years between co-founding the Black Artists Group in St. Louis and the World Saxophone Quartet, Oliver Lake had already developed a unique voice on the alto saxophone and an equally original approach to composition. His tart tone delivered raw aggression with refined quality, like a blend of Eric Dolphy and a chamber player

At an abstract level, however, Bowie and Lake complement one another. The second track from the April 10th concert that is included in this CD is the passionate "Universal Justice. It is an energetic alto saxophone solo filled with exuberance, fury, angularity and even hints of contemplation. The remaining music was recorded on the second day of Bowie and Lake's appearance at "a Space.

The instrumentation is loose, open-ended, and incredibly creative – a wonderful array of sounds, textures, and shapes – played by a lineup that includes Oliver Lake on saxes and flute, Baikida Carroll on trumpet, Joseph Bowie on trombone, Floyd LeFlore on trumpet, and Charles Bobo Shaw on drums and percussion – with additional percussion help from all the other group members, too!
