Cecil Taylor Unit: It Is In The Brewing Luminous
On "It Is In The Brewing Luminous - Part 1". Taylor commences with blues-drenched yet altogether abstract lines as the band gradually converges for what equates to a lissome foray of perpetual motion, featuring Taylor's swirling cadenzas, rapidly executed block chords and the band's ferocious polytonal-based interplay. Throughout, Lyons darts, jabs and spars with Taylor atop Ameen's often angular and steamy lines, while the rhythm section lays down the often hectic spark and oscillating pulse. Essentially, Taylor and co. embark upon a wanderlust of micro-themes, and blistering undercurrents amid gargantuan opuses and unsurpassed energetic spirit! Highly recommended.
