Cecil Taylor-The Dance Project

Cecil Taylor The Dance Project:

Though his technical prowess has diminished slightly due to his age, Taylor’s feel has only gotten better. He can tickle the keys and he can beat them like a hammer, and he knows exactly when to do each.

Rating: 14/15 continued artistic growth points

Matthew Ship Harmonic Disorder:

Monkish piano interplays beautifully with a very talented rhythm section. The faster Bop workouts are strong, but are still Bop workouts. The true strength of this album resides in the slower spacious tunes where the harmonic interplay and push and pull between the trio members creates a unique tension.

Rating: 12/15 should of stuck to the cool stuff
