Synopsis

Product Description
Originally released in 1961, this album allows the listener a fascinating insight into the inner workings of pianist Cecil Taylor's burgeoning talent almost half a century ago. Cell Walk For Celeste features Archie Shepp on all tracks, including a duet with Buell Neidlinger. The octet track Jumpin' Punkins shows that Taylor was not only an arranger who stayed loyal to a successful chart, but also an individual who kept the basics of his solos intact in later renditions. There is literally no difference in the playing time of the two takes of this tune, and both Steve Lacy and Clark Terry take solos that are similar in design and are realized with the same attention to creative detail.
