This solo performance finds pianist Cecil Taylor at the absolute height of his powers (“one of Taylor’s most rewarding recordings”–The Wire), moving seamlessly between delicate lyricism and swells of sheer intensity. Split into five tracks, The Tree of Life makes a good introduction while also extending the musical language of previous landmark solo albums like Silent Tongues. Otherwise out of print!
