Lap Hey, Lee! C onsidering the wealth of great saxophonists in the sixties, evidently Frank Strozier found a way to stand out. Strozier, now 80 and inactive for decades, has worked towards a hard bop style with alluring, adventurous touches, delivered with an irresistible combination of fury and sweetness. His career was off to a promising start. His subsequent years in New York City in the early 60s and on the West Coast for the rest of the decade kept Strozier in high demand.
Strozier recorded sporadically in the seventies, when an alledged disappointment with the music business caused Strozier to quit playing altogether. A combination of assets that lifts the Fain, Magidson and Yellen ballad to a higher plain.
Strozier is excellent on flute as well. March Of The Siamese Children stands out, his flute weaving sprightly and authoritatively through the pretty melody and the appealing interplay of exotic and straightforward rhythm.
The beautiful composition was written by the legendary team of music theatre writers Rodgers and Hammerstein Lap - Frank Strozier Quartet - March Of The Siamese Children for the musical The King And I in It was revived for the movie version in starring Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr.
Intriguing, like Strozier himself, a distinct personality deserving much more attention than Le Postillon De Longjumeau - Mes Amis, Écoutez Lhistoire - Various - Les Plus Belles Voix Du Sièc has until now received.
