And of course, Cecil Taylor, one of the greatest musicians ever. And I don't mean among the other two-thousand "greatest musicians ever;" I mean that he is probably one of the top 10 greatest musicians who ever lived. Other musicians have even said that he was greater than Stravinsky. This album has been out of print for a very long time; it was only just reissued by Blue Note in 2004. Recorded in 1966, Conquistador came from one of the two only sessions that Taylor had with Blue Note (the other one, only a few months earlier, produced Unit Structures). An earlier Taylor album, Jazz Advance, has been reissued by Blue Note, but it was originally recorded for an independent label. At any rate, it's an absolute joy to have the other half of his Blue Note sessions.

Filed under Avant-Garde Jazz By CECIL TAYLOR.

Cecil Percival Taylor (March 25, 1929 – April 5, 2018) was an American pianist and poet. Taylor was classically trained and was one of the pioneers of free jazz. His music is characterized by an energetic, physical approach, resulting in complex improvisation often involving tone clusters and intricate polyrhythms. His technique has been compared to percussion. Referring to the number of keys on a standard piano, Val Wilmer used the phrase "eighty-eight tuned drums" to describe Taylor's style

For the second of Cecil Taylor's two Blue Note albums (following Unit Structures), the innovative pianist utilized a sextet comprised of trumpeter Bill Dixon, altoist Jimmy Lyons, both Henry Grimes and Alan Silva on basses and drummer Andrew Cyrille. During the two lengthy pieces, Lyons' passionate solos contrast with Dixon's quieter ruminations while the music in general is unremittingly intense
