ENJA 24 BIT MASTER EDITION:
Recorded in 1976. Remastered from analog source.
Jeremy Steig came to fame as leader of his band Jeremy & The Satyrs who were pioneers in the jazz-rock movement. An outstanding jazz flutist, Steig exploited a wide range of performance techniques. In the seventies, he frequently collaborated with bassist Eddie Gomez, best known for his work with Bill Evans, Jim Hall and Paul Bley. Gomez is a virtuoso performer whose swiftness makes him an ideal bassist in small groups. Recorded during a European tour in 1976, "Outlaws" is considered a milestone album in jazz duets. "The session catches the special magic of that oscillating feedback loop created by emphatic interaction between superb performers and a sensitive audience," Downbeat magazine read. It was the now legendary start of a string of duet albums by the flute & bass team of Steig & Gomez.
