An astounding hour of uninterrupted music from one of Cecil Taylor’s very best small groups, recorded during a particularly fertile period in his career. Traces of stride, Errol Garner grace notes, and unrelenting rhythmic inventiveness emerge from Taylor’s piano. Tony Oxley’s drums provides the sizzle, William Parker’s stirring bass the bottom. All provide the beauty. This is for those looking to investigate what Greg Tate called Taylor’s “theory of musical astrophysics.” The Penguin Guide to Jazz’s Richard Cook deems this disc “refined, remonstrative, radical. Recommended.”
