CD Reviews

Student Studies
Finn Solvang | Denmark | 09/26/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very dark and sinister record, but never the less my personal all time favorite. Everything about the record is amazing. From the begining of "Student Studies Part 1" Jimmy Lyons frist echo call and response lines sets the mood, and it's dark very dark. Cecil Taylors playing is hard and intense, at times with furious attack, with unsurpassed control of his instrument. Alan Silva adds much color to the ensemble, he bows his doublebass at length and adds to the sinister flavor.Andrew Cyrille is Cecils match on the drums. Everything about this record is great! Five stars is minimum, I think it deserves the old Crown :0)"
Quintessential Quartet

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Paris, 1966
THE quartet that defines the sound, the movement, that is ... the music.
How four musicians could create such space/time, dynamics, melody, force and grace.
Excellent recording quality of course.
Forever thank you to Cecil, Andrew, Alan and Jimmy.
There are not enough words to set the context and history, think of the other great musics being created in 1966
yet like all the greats, completely timeless and priceless
There are none better. If you found these recordings then you already know.
Great Paris Concert for once lives up to it's billing."
