Cecil Taylor - Fly! Fly! Fly! Fly! Fly!

Fly! Fly! Fly! Fly! Fly!

I'm one of those Cecil Taylor fans that prefers Cecil's Solo albums to his duo, trio, quartet, etc. albums. Not that I don't think a lot of those records to be total masterpieces. It's just that I love hearing Cecil's manic flury of notes all over the place.

This isn't quite up there with Silent Tongues, but it's still better than ninety-nine percent of the free jazz that's clogging up the scene now.

WHOOO I JUST INSULTED MUSICIANS WHO ARE A 1,000 TIMES MORE TALENTED THAN I WILL EVER BE. INTERNET YOU ARE TRULY AWESOME.

What a champ! I pretty much feel the same way, except for Conquistadors! and Spring of 2 Blue J's (which is half solo anyway)...
Thanks for the link dude!
