Product Description:

Personnel includes: Cecil Taylor (piano); Jimmy Lyons (alto saxophone); Bill Dixon (trumpet); Henry Grimes, Alan Silva (bass); Andrew Cyrille (drums).
Recorded at the Van Gelder studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on October 6, 1966. Includes liner notes by Bob Blumenthal.
This is part of Blue Notes RVG series.
For the second of Cecil Taylor's two Blue Note albums (following Unit Structures), the innovative pianist utilized a sextet comprised of trumpeter Bill Dixon, altoist Jimmy Lyons, both Henry Grimes and Alan Silva on basses and drummer Andrew Cyrille. During the two lengthy pieces, Lyons' passionate solos contrast with Dixon's quieter ruminations while the music in general is unremittingly intense. Both of the Taylor Blue Notes are quite historic and near-classics but, despite this important documentation, Cecil Taylor (other than a pair of Paris concerts) would not appear on records again until 1973. ~ Scott Yanow
