Format: Audio CD
Previously a neglected figure in my jazz collection, I have purchased a half-dozen Billy Taylor CDs in the past year, several of which I have recently reviewed on Amazon, including With Earl May & Ed Thigpen and Cross Section. "Billy Taylor Trio with Earl May/Percy Brice" is another one of my Fantasy/OJC warehouse clearance sale finds on the Oldies/Collectables website. It features two albums originally made for the Prestige label on one disc -- "At Town Hall" a concert performance from NYC on December 17, 1954, and "A Touch of Taylor," recorded on April 10, 1955 at Rudy Van Gelder's Hackensack, New Jersey studio. Both efforts are solid, straight ahead jazz with the only unexpected moment a 13-minute live rendition of "How High the Moon" where the trio really stretch out. Paying full price for this title is asking a bit much, but if you can find it cheaply like I did, then it's worthwhile.
