"3 Phasis" (1978) is considered by many to be one of Taylor's strongest. Cecil and his "Unit" play for just under an hour with balance, restraint and shape. While not as cathartic as this band's previous New World recording, there are stunning moments (at one point they sounds like a herd of stampeding elephants). As always, Taylor uses his piano to break all forms of musical etiquette.
Halfway through the piece, Cecil and drummer Ronald Shannon Jackson start a shuffle beat, using chords that sound like they came from a rejected Rachmaninoff piano concerto. Remarkably (for Taylor), this groove is sustained for many minutes, igniting alto saxophonist Jimmy Lyons.
