Cecil Taylor – Love For Sale


This may be the straightest record Cecil Taylor ever recorded, but it is far from uninspiring. Despite its hopelessly gauche cover — one can only presume Taylor had no say-so in the choice of artwork used — Taylor’s approach to three Cole Porter tunes with a trio and three of his own with a quintet is a lively combination, and one which, in lieu of his later work, reveals the construction of his system of improvisation better than his later records do when he is playing from the middle of it. Love for Sale is a delightful anomaly in Cecil Taylor’s long career.
