Pianist Cecil Taylor formed a very unique sounding band for his Blue Note Records debut in 1966. Taylor began experimenting throughout the 50s and 60s, his music became more complex and developed in a way that was different then other jazz forms of the time. The album opened up new possibilities in the realm of jazz, allowing musicians to develop unique forms of musical exchange. The unusual septet voicing includes two bass players.

Attraverso i case studies di quattro musicisti geniali ma spesso avversati dai contemporanei perché considerati troppo "difficili" o "sperimentali" - i pianisti Cecil Taylor e Herbie Nichols, i sassofonisti Ornette Coleman e Jackie McLean - Spellman offre un resoconto aspro e disincantato del conflitto tra le esigenze dell'entertainment e quelle dell'integrità artistica, tra le asfissie del mercato discografico e gli orizzonti potenzialmente infiniti della ricerca musicale. Ciò che emerge da queste pagine, nel vivido racconto in prima persona dei protagonisti, è una vicenda di battaglie quotidiane per la sopravvivenza, fra difficoltà economiche, droghe e discriminazioni razziali; ma anche una storia di speranza e solidarietà, di inaspettati riscatti e rari, luminosi successi…

Cecil Taylor is the grand master of free jazz piano. All the Notes captures in breezy fashion the unconventional stance of this media-shy modern musical genius, regarded as one of the true giants of post-war music. Taylor is first seen musing over Santiago Calatrava's feecy architecture- a typical sign of the pianist's famed eclectic interests, which extend from soloing, combo and small orchestra work to spoken word performance. Seated at his beloved and battered piano in his Brooklyn brownstone the maestro holds court with frequent stentorian pronouncements on life, art and music. A massively interesting documentary on a true icon.

In the nearly forty years since the recording of Unit Structures, Cecil Taylor has steadfastly developed his orchestral music as arguably the most unique musical expression of one of the (jazz) world's most intelligent and idiosyncratic minds. Recorded during the Total Music Meeting in Berlin on November 2, 1996, Almeda is an honest documentation of a single Taylor "composition for large ensemble.
