    "Who would have thought a series of soprano saxophone duets would be so compelling?" So begins one rave review of this classic summit meeting between three of jazz's finest improvisers. These performances find Lol Coxhill, Evan Parker, and Steve Lacy creating beautiful friction and complementing each other in unexpected ways. With its unusual textures and dizzying melodies, the album showcases each musician in a fresh light. For Lacy fans in particular, this one is a must.

REVIEWS
.
All Music Guide: 4 ½ Stars

"These performances are all gems in their way, each made interesting by the common ground these very different players find as the positions they adopt are dissolved or swapped. Riveting for the listener and provides revealing contexts for all three musicians." - The Wire

"Music as pure and simple as it can be coming from three men who breathe it. Three Blokes is not only compelling, it's riveting." -- Thom Jurek, All Music Guide

"Summit meeting of three of the improvising world’s major saxophonists who also happen to be soprano players. Four duets and a brief trio to conclude. Pure gold." -Rubberneck

"Beautiful cascades of tumbling notes. Some head-spinning textural playing. The music is warmly recorded by Jost Gebers and a pleasure to listen to." -- Resonance
