Playlist, Week of 2014-10-26

I stumbled across Hank Shteamer's most recent blog post about Cecil Taylor, and I am so glad I's chock full of insight and has some great links. I was astounded to find out there that the legendary 10-CD box set of the Feel Trio (Cecil, William Parker, Tony Oxley), Two Ts for a Lovely T, is available on amazon for under $12. MP3s, true, but at 320, and I'll never be able to afford that limited-edition out-of-print box, and it has long been a gap in my Cecil collection, so I jumped on it, and immersed myself in it all week. It is fantastic. Oxley is killer, and the perfect complement to Cecil, who is, as usual, ravishing and beautiful here. Whew.
