The Way is a live album by soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy, which was recorded in Basel, Switzerland in 1979 and first released on the HatHut label in 1980 as a double LP. The album was rereleased as a double LP in 1985 and as a CD in 2000 with three additional tracks from the concert. This was always a well-organized and highly. Some tunes utilize the voices of Aebi and Lacy, and these are often quite eccentric and for more selective tastes. This was always a well-organized and highly original group. Track Listing - Disc 1.

Steve Lacy July 23, 1934 - June 4, 2004, born Steven Norman Lackritz in New York City, was a jazz saxophonist and composer recognized as one of the important players of soprano saxophone. Coming to prominence in the 1950s as a progressive dixieland musician, Lacy went on to a long and prolific career. Lacy also became a highly distinctive composer, with compositions often built out of little more than a single questioning phrase, repeated several times. The music of Thelonious Monk became a permanent part of Lacy's repertoire
