By Steven R. Seim on July 24, 2002
Format: Audio CD
"With Candido" is probably Billy Taylor's most accessible and interesting recording. The addition of Candido's Latin percussion seems to bring some needed spark and intensity to the proceedings, besides being a perfect counterpoint to Taylor's otherwise "cool" technique. The result: an unknown masterpiece of Latin jazz.

While this album is too slight to merit five stars -- its just a ten-inch record from 1954 with a couple of extra tracks slapped on for LP release -- it's astonishing nevertheless how something this simple could be this good. Like the best Latin jazz of the late 1940s and early 1950s, like Dizzy Gillespie's work in the genre or classic albums like Kenny Dorham's Afro-Cuban, this is straightahead jazz with Latin cross-rhythms added, rather than Latin music per se. Billy Taylor was a cheery pianist of the Red Garland variety and he gives generous solo space here to conga and bongo maestro Candido. For a perfect indication of the special magic these guys were making, just listen to this album's back-to-back tracks "Bit of Bedlam" and "Declivity", where the piano trio plays in straight jazz time and Candido riffs against the boppish beat. It's the best of both worlds.

this is very valuable because it reveals Billy Taylor's style and talent as a young artists and it also shows his interest in Latin American music.
