Editorial Reviews

Cecil Percival Taylor is an American pianist and poet. Classically trained, Taylor is generally acknowledged as one of the pioneers of free jazz. His music is characterized by an extremely energetic, physical approach, producing complex improvised sounds, frequently involving tone clusters and intricate polyrhythms. His piano technique has been likened to percussion and was once described as 'eighty-eight tuned drums' (referring to the number of keys on a standard piano). This specially-priced set includes five classic albums from Black Saint/Soul Note. Included are Winged Serpent, Olu Iwa, For Olim and the two sets of Historic Concerts.

Cecil Taylor's work leaves formal jazz structure and and rhythm behind, instead he follows his own path-no matter in a group setting, duo or solo work. This box set brings together a little of each. This is another in this series from Black Saint/Soul Note, who has released a number of fine sets of several of jazz's better musicians/composers. Bill Dixon, David Murray, and Henry Threadgill are just three of the better sets on this series. These recordings are the original albums, remastered, with good, crisp, clean sound. There's no booklet, just whatever information is on the back of the box and the respective album covers. Each disc slips inside a reproduction of the original album cover, and then inside a fairly substantial lidded box.

"Winged Serpent (Sliding Quadrants)", from 1984, has Taylor (who wrote all four compositions) playing in a fairly large group including the great Jimmy Lyons-alto sax, Frank Wright-tenor sax, Enrico Rava and Tomasz Stanko-trumpets, William Parker-bass, Rashid Bakr-drums, and several other horn players. This is a fine album and should be more well known among Taylor/jazz fans. The four tracks (between 7-13 minutes long) are a combination of melodic swing (as Taylor hears it) from another era and dense, tightly woven group improvisation-with the horns used to color and deepen the sound. The sound is at times, dense and compelling, and the overall feel of this album is very exciting. The music rushes out of the speakers like water from a broken faucet. "Cun-Un-Un-Un-An", with voices and percussion,sounds straight out of Africa, as if from another time. This album is one of the high points of this collection-if densely played "Taylor music" is your thing.
