FMP CD 029
Chirps is an all-soprano classic from masters of the straight horn Lacy and Parker. It captures three long tracks that were performed live in July 1985, plus three more that were recorded after the audience left the hall. The two musicians meld their distinct styles in seamless and surprising ways. Sleek and beautiful sounds.

"If you like the sound of sopranos, you’ll love Chirps!" - Graham Lock, The Wire
"This must have been a hell of a concert to see. When the two men joined, magic happened. Both players entered the musical sphere lyrically with subtlety and elegance. A tapestry of new jazz was sketched and then emerged fully formed." - All Music Guide
4 stars from the Penguin Guide to Jazz
"Listeners who off-handedly lodge pejoratives like “aloof’ or “overly-academic” at either player would be wise to spend some time assimilating the warm and inquisitive colloquies of this set." - Bagatellan
