||This old house was only a few blocks from the state Capitol in Madison,
Wisconsin. All the neighborhood cats lived in the basement during the
winter. The house has long since been torn down, but in 1972 there were
AR2ax speakers in the front room, and a lot of good music was heard there.
In the 21st century I am just as opinionated as ever,
and I now have an outlet. I shall pontificate here about anything
that catches my fancy; I hope I will not make too great a fool
of myself. You may comment yea or nay about anything on the
site; I may quote you here, or I may not. Send brickbats etc.
August 3, 2012Cecil Taylor: Whew! What a giant!
A nice day. Mowed the lawn this morning, had a shower, played with my records all day. Dubbed two two-record sets by Cecil Taylor to my hard disc, and I'll tell you, eight LP sides by Cecil Taylor is a workout for the ears, especially his duet with drummer Max Roach in 1979 and Columbia University. How can one man play so much piano? There's a good story in my entry for Cecil, here.
