Cecil Taylor Trio And Quintet - Love For Sale Love For Sale
Jazz New - LP GXC 3133 United Artists
New, Unplayed 1976 Japanese (King Pressing) Stereo Reissue With Obi. “This May Be The Straightest Record Cecil Taylor Ever Recorded, But It Is Far From Uninspiring. Despite Its Hopelessly Gauche Cover -- One Can Only Presume Taylor Had No Say-So In The Choice Of Artwork Used -- Taylor's Approach To Three Cole Porter Tunes With A Trio And Three Of His Own With A Quintet Is A Lively Combination, And One Which, In Lieu Of His Later Work, Reveals The Construction Of His System Of Improvisation Better Than His Later Records Do When He Is Playing From The Middle Of It. Accompanied By Dennis Charles On Drums And Buell Neidlinger On Bass, Taylor Dives Deep Into Porter's "I Love Paris," A Shifty Little Pop Song…..On The Title Track It's Much The Same, Except Taylor's Tenderness Shines Through In His Lilting Right Hand In The Middle As He Trades Fours With Charles. There's A Wonderful Cut-Time Tempo Here, And Taylor Starts Building Scales Harmonically In His Solo Only To Answer Them With The Melody And Original Harmony. With His Own Three Tunes, With Trumpeter Ted Curson And Saxophonist Bill Barron Added To The Fray, Taylor Takes More Chances. On "Little Lees (Louise)," He Scores In An Elaborate Melody That Is Played Without Dissonance By The Horn Section As He And Neidlinger Play Entirely In Counterpoint. But Here, Too, There Is A Sublime Lyricism At Work; There Are No Extra Notes Or Chords, And Everything Falls In Line With The Chromatic Architecture Taylor Composes With. "Maities Trophie" Is Taylor Ringing In A Blues Jam À La Ellington -- Or At Least His Version Of Ellington. The Solos By Curson And Barron Are Tight, Narrative, And Bordering On Swing, But All That's Taken Care Of By Taylor's Solo. Love For Sale Is A Delightful Anomaly In Cecil Taylor's Long Career.” Thom Jurek, AMG.... more details
