it's hard to fathom that Oxley is playing "just" drums and Taylor "just" piano, since they both seem to occupy bigger sonic realms.

I've read somewhere something to the effect that Taylor considers himself less of a piano player, rather a player of a set of 88 tuned drums. This kinda fits in with your remark.




Saw Cecil and Tony last night (Thursday) and was just blown away. Saw Cecil once before, and was slightly disappointed, but last night's show more than met my expectations. Cecil's playing has mellowed a bit, but that's actually a good thing; he played beautifully throughout, and Oxley smiled devilishly several times as he responded to Taylor's licks. Clearly, the two were having fun. Plan on going back on Sunday! Can't miss.

I made it last night to the early set as well. Agreed, I was surprised by the sweetness, very pretty playing. Loved when they really went at it in the last piece, as well. Great stuff.


Just wanted to let you know that I have the Cecil Taylor show from the Portland Jazz Fest 2008 available for download on my blog. Please let me know what you think.

Cheers, Kevin
