The son of a Russian Taylor (born in 1927; died on 1991) grew and grew up under the most inspirational jazz decades, such as Ben Webster, Woody Herman, Miles Davis, Coleman Hawkins, Ron Carter, Lester Young, Charlie Parker and so many others consecrated soloists.
"He was sheer genius" Dizzy Gillespie about him. Widely celebrated by his ballads; his flawless and velvet tune makes him immediately recognizable among the most discrete listener; so his nickname "the sound" couldn't be more appropriate; he gave a crucial launch to Brazilian music through his renowned musical success than deserved him the world acknowledgement ; Girl from Ipanema with Astrud Gilberto became a reference, a status song and almost his instantaneous meeting card in most stages in the world.
The live piece "It never entered my mind" is probably the jewel of the crown in this golden recording with Oscar Peterson, but all the album is pure gold.
The recording is an invaluable set of historical performances that span from 1952 (track 3), 1955 (tracks 2, 4), 1957 (track 5), 1958 (track 6) 1961 (track 9) 1962 (track 1), 1963 ( track 10) 1967 ( track 7) to 1971 (track 8).
