Drum master Arthur Taylor: "Taylor's Tenors" with Frank Foster and Charlie Rouse.

Drummer, Arthur Taylor was a ubiquitous figure on dozens of Jazz recordings in the 50s and 60s. It seemed that Mr. Taylor was on every second recording for Prestige, Blue Note and to a lesser extent, Riverside. Ironically during this productive period he only made three albums under his own name.This date is one of them and features two of his favourite tenor saxophonists: Frank Foster and Charlie Rouse. Hence the album's title "Taylor's Tenors" On piano is one of the great Bud Powell disciples, Walter Davis Jr. His accompaniment and solos are a great asset to this album. On bass is the wonderful Sam Jones, who needs no introduction. The tunes are by Davis, Rouse, Jackie McLean and Taylor plus two of Thelonious Monk's most well known tunes..."Rhythm-A-Ning" and "Straight, No Chaser". During this time Rouse, Jones and Taylor were 3/4 of Monk's Quartet. Today is Arthur Taylor's Birthday as he was born in New York on April 6, 1929 and died on February 6, 1995 (age 65). Happy Birthday A.T.!
