Cecil Percival Taylor (born March 15 or March 25, 1929 in New York City) is an American pianist and poet.
Taylor is generally acknowledged as one of the innovators of free jazz. His music is some of the most challenging in jazz, characterized by an extremely energetic, physical approach, producing exceedingly complex improvised sounds, frequently involving tone clusters and intricate polyrhythms. At first listen, his dense and percussive music can be difficult to absorb. His piano technique has often been likened to drums and percussion rather than to any other pianists and sometimes resembles modern classical music as well as jazz.
Continuando com as gravações de Jazz ao vivo, aí vai um raro álbum de Cecil Taylor. Um belo trabalho de Free-Jazz, com faixas longas - três com aproximadamente 20 minutos e uma com 12 minutos - executadas com maestria.
