Drum Master Arthur Taylor: "A.T's Delight".

9:02pm - 12:35am

Art Taylor was one of the most ubiquitous musicians on the Jazz scene in the 50's and 60's and recorded with everyone from Charlie Parker to Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell...everyone! Art appeared on hundreds of recording sessions because not only because he was great but because he was easy to record and his clear distinctive cymbal ride was one of his great assets. His drum style combined his two mentors, Max Roach and Art Blakey. He made only a few albums under his own name despite being on so many sessions as a sideman. This is only his third. The first two were for Prestige Records and this one was done for the Blue Note label. This month we are featuring one-shot albums for Blue Note. This date benefits not only by inspiring and well-programmed music but Blue Note's excellent production standards. Arthur picked all the men for the date and we begin with the underrated trumpeter Dave Burns. Burns is on the front line with the great then new voice of the tenor saxophone, Stanley Turrentine. Wynton Kelly on piano graces the session with his relaxed eloquence. Paul Chambers who recorded as often as Art Taylor is on bass and on three tunes the band is augmented by the great Cuban conguero, Carlos "Patato" Valdes. Great tunes and inspired playing are definitely A.T.'s Delight!
