though Marilyn Crispell, who likes Taylor and everybody says is like Taylor, hadn’t heard Taylor when she started, when she was like Taylor from the start.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 9:13am Brian in UK:

Is this what some might call classical music?
  Sun. 4/8/18 9:16am Stepchild:

Beautiful morning here in NJ, beautiful music in this ether. Nice to start with solo Cecil.
  Sun. 4/8/18 9:16am Mark R:

For some excellent articles on Mr. Taylor, might I direct you to WFMU's own Kurt Gottschalk, who wrote several articles about him for various publications, and even interviewed him at least once. Google Kurt Gottschalk Cecil Taylor for some very fine writing to accompany this very, very fine music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 9:17am Jeff Golick:

Hallo, @Brian. Packing? Spring cleaning, or moving?

@Scraps: yes, Crispell can sound Taylor-like, though I wasn't really aware that she hadn't heard CT before her start

@Stepchild: thanks for being here in the ether!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/8/18 9:19am fred:

@Scraps: does she have his temper? I only got to see Cecil Taylor once, he was supposed to play with Amiri Baraka, but they had an... argument so they performed separately. Both were fiery characters, and now they're both gone
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/8/18 9:21am Scraps ¥§¥¥§¥:

She didn’t have a jazz education. I’m trying to look up Spirit Music, when Crispell was interviewed by Bob Rusch, where I got that information

This Bomb magazine piece on CT by César Aira is also great reading: bombmagazine.org...
  Sun. 4/8/18 9:24am Mark R:

I sometimes think solo Cecil is the best way to hear him. How did other musicians ever keep up with him?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/8/18 9:24am fred:

When I told about Cecil's death to a coworker who's a Jazz pianist, he was basically "good riddance". He hates free jazz, obviously
  Sun. 4/8/18 9:25am Stepchild:

My first time seeing Cecil perform was in Atlanta must have been mid-80s. Solo. I knew only Nefertiti, The Beautiful One — slightly. I was unprepared. Devastating.
  Sun. 4/8/18 9:26am Doug Schulkind:

Still trying (refusing) to process the loss of Mr. Taylor. He taught us how the love.

Gary Giddins is also very good on Cecil, if you're looking for more to read.
  Sun. 4/8/18 9:32am Doug Schulkind:

The organist for Fenway Park in Boston played Cecil Taylor’s “Rick Kick Shaw” during the first inning of the Red Sox game. The song is on Cecil’s Jazz Advance album, which was recorded in Boston.

A note: Sam Rivers once said that about 80 percent of Cecil's work is composed.

  Sun. 4/8/18 9:35am Stepchild:

I don’t believe Sam on that
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 9:36am Jeff Golick:

I think it entails a wider understanding of "composed," something beyond "notated music."
  Sun. 4/8/18 9:39am Stepchild:

Cecil spoke and wrote of improvisation and life in the instant moment. Notes and gestures certainly came from there. Structures another thing definitely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 9:41am Jeff Golick:

This Willisau concert, btw, is available at bandcamp: ceciltaylor.bandcamp.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/8/18 9:41am Uncle Michael:

I must go, too. I'll be with you all in spirit, if not in the moment. Thanks, Jeff.
  Sun. 4/8/18 9:42am Stepchild:

As a notable quote it gets into an untenable opposition between composition and improvisation. But it also makes sense to say it because of the impression/assertion of many that Cecil was just doing random flailing of an unstructured kind -including fellow musicians cough Miles
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 9:42am Jeff Golick:

Thanks for being here, @UM. See you 'round these parts soon.

Hi folks... Taylor music much appreciated.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 9:47am Listener Robert:

I find myself wanting to "join the conversation" this piano is having, and to laugh at the jokes -- if only I could figure out what the "people" in it were saying!

I guess if I were a dancer rather than a talker, I might think of it that way. But as far as foot movement is concerned, it sounds more like sidewalk traffic than dancing. Or maybe sidewalk + street -- like for instance, just there some heavy trucks rumbled thru.
  Sun. 4/8/18 9:52am Stepchild:

Yess
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 9:54am Listener Robert:

Dancing is more rhythmic and repetitive in one place. This, by contrast, is "going somewhere".

Step into that head traffic I’m no dancer either but shaking it here anyway

The composer banned public showing for years because nobody could play it with the composer’s satisfaction.

  Sun. 4/8/18 10:08am Doctorjazz:

I think it was Gary Giddens who described Taylor's playing as his 10 fingers acted like 10 drummers on the piano. The dance talk reminded me of that.
  Sun. 4/8/18 10:09am Mark R:

I can't imagine any other show in the world that would play an entire concert like this. Thank you so much, Jeff! This is the best Cecil Taylor tribute I could ever imagine. I only have his "Unit Structures" album, his part of the "Jazz Composers Orchestra" album and the three songs he contributed to Gil Evans' "Into the Hot" album, so this solo concert has been an absolute revelation. Thanks so much for sharing this with us this morning. And yes, it is indeed an absolutely gorgeous sunny morning in NJ (and I assume most of the northeast). Made only more beautiful by the fantastic music you've chosen for us today.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 10:15am Jeff Golick:

@doc: I think it was author Val Wilmer who described Taylor turning the piano into "88 tuned drums," in As Serious As Your Life.

@Mark R: oh my! Just grateful for the chance to share it all. Thanks, man.

Thank you, Jeff. It means a lot to me to be able to have access through streaming to listen to all these tributes here and on other radio stations, while in Mexico City, my second life. And to read the comments here from our special CT community. Again, thank you for your work on WFMU (and elsewhere).Never enough Cecil.

Played just this track, no. 1 of OTMSS&NG, a couple days ago, Trance with Sonny Murray & Jimmy Lyons yesterday. Still more to revisit.

@Scraps @9:56: I do indeed know Sorabji. I have John Ogdon's Opus Clavicembalisticum and assorted other recitals. Many years ago I asked Matthew Shipp if he knew Sorabji's music. At the time he didn't, and I've been meaning ever since to send him OC. Haven't done so.

Ok, so I didn't plan this out very well time-wise, and in order to include this entire performance by the CT Unit, this show will be going about 30 minutes over. The archive will not be able to hold it all (suitably enough).

Oh the humanity, we have to suffer through an extra 30 mins of Cecil!
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 10:51am Listener Robert:

That's OK, as long as it finishes in time for Jonesy's & Burnsy's 1st mic break.
  Sun. 4/8/18 10:53am Mark R:

I just figured out that he was 71 years old when he played that Willisau concert. I can't imagine having that kind of energy, to play that ferociously for that long, at 71.

Yeah, it's astonishing, really.

He was quite strong when he played at the Whitney in 2016, the last time many of us saw him.

@alanr: Yes. He seemed rather frail, physically, as he walked with helpers to the stage. But once he hit the piano...BOOM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 11:02am Jeff Golick:

I like that I'm able to play these long concerts -- the overwhelming totality of it is very much part of the Cecil Taylor experience (imo).
  Sun. 4/8/18 11:04am Stepchild:

You did the right thing, man
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 11:17am Jeff Golick:

I like this line, from the Willisau concert liner notes, quoting a music journalist: «There is no Taylor style. There is only Cecil Taylor.»
  Sun. 4/8/18 11:26am Dean:

The OTMSS&NG liner notes report that officials denied Taylor a proper grand piano for this concert, because it was reserved for "classical pianists."

3 LP set seems cooler but in cases like this a CD seems like the way to go. Best to leave the slab intact.

I think it just quieted down for a sec, and folks got jumpy.
  Sun. 4/8/18 12:10pm Dean:

A very limited CD edition includes still more, the encore consisting of a medley of Billy Joel tunes.

This is actually that, @Dean. Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/8/18 12:16pm fred:

@Dean: that could have come in handy at the show I was yesterday. They clearly wanted to play more, the venue dimmed the lights on stage, after a while then cut them out. Nothing like Billy Joel to drive people out, they should have thought of this
  Sun. 4/8/18 12:17pm Dean:

This illustrates why nobody has ever been to a Billy Joel concert.

Worth recalling that you have played tributes to Cecil Taylor, among others, to celebrate their lives before their passing.

(I wouldn't mind catching a Billy Joel concert-not willing to break the bank for tix, though)

Scott played Cecil Taylor in part because he didn't want to wait for a tribute to do so. Maybe he'll play someone else. I'm sure his choice will be sound

@Dean: "nobody has ever been to a Billy Joel concert" marks you as a candidate for Yogi Berra reincarnation seats

Fuckin' majestic tribute, Jeff. Many thanks for letting him run long.

Thanks for the explanation, JG. I just don't know how the digital recording works. Is file size related closely to actual duration? I'd've thought there'd be a large variation due to data compression.

don't forget Sonny Rollins, also still around!

Yes! Great show.

Sonny! Yes, thanks, @hyde. Still here (though sadly not able to play any more).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/8/18 12:39pm Jeff Golick:

Bye for now, @hyde! @listener james! @Listener Robert! @Dean! @fred! @rw! @doctorjazz! And all!

Hi again. In case anyone is reading along, I misspoke earlier re the archived version of this show: it's the full show. (The 3-hr. limit is only in effect when the WFMU system is doing the recording; "home taping" allows for longer archives.)
