Cecil Taylor – For Olim

For Olim

Cecil TaylorFor Olim Soul Note SN 1150 (1987)

Taylor continued to expand his palette on this mid-1980s solo outing.  Although known as an innovator for approaching modern jazz from a background in modern classical, here he incorporates a few R&B influences.  Good stuff, though newcomers should probably start with his 1970s solo outings first.
