Cecil Taylor 'The World Of Cecil Taylor' LP
Deluxe packaging includes 12-page booklet with rare photos, memorabilia & updates, as well as the original liner notes. This release presents the complete original LP The World of Cecil Taylor (Candid 9006), which was the first album recorded by Cecil Taylor for the legendary Candid label. The group consists of the Cecil Taylor Trio, with Buell Neidlinger on bass and Dennis Charles on drums, plus Archie Shepp on tenor sax joining them on two songs. An extra song and two alternate takes from the same sessions have been added as a bonus.
"This is a wonderful document from early in Taylor's career, when he was midway between modernist approaches to standard material and his own radical experiments that would come to full fruition a few years hence. A classic recording that belongs in anyone's collection." - Brian Olewnick, All Music Guide
