Cecil Taylor – Silent Tongues

Cecil Taylor’s Silent Tongues is a mind-boggling masterpiece. His piano solos are delirious yet delicious, chaotic yet hypnotic. He has an amazing sense of rhythmic structure and his percussive attacks are simply crazy. (Imagine playing the drums on a piano.) His angularity and virtuosity are unexplainable. You just have to experience the album yourself. I am on my third spin and still getting high off his frenzied sounds.
