Description (English):
Cecil Taylor, like his music, is dynamic and aggressive, but in subtle ways. He moves over the piano like an acrobatic dancer, and he employs the entire keyboard. His technique of playing is a result of intensive practice of his own musical ideas. Cecil is highly conscious of the theatre, and his compositions are organized by juxtaposing elements of different moods against each other like actors on a stage. This, his first album for Candid, originally released in 1960, features Buell Neidlinger on bass, Dennis Charles on drums and Archie Shepp on tenor sax.
