In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org - On Sunday, October 10th, 2004 Cecil Taylor gave the first of the Master Classes Series presented by NYU in conjunction with John Snyder of Artists House Foundation. Taylor has been known as a controversial figure in jazz. A true innovator, Taylor has taken the roots of music and transcended any limitations or definitions. He has abandoned traditional song forms, preset and repetitive chord sequences and the concept of a steady pulse or meter. However, Taylor's music is not devoid of structure or organization. In fact, his music in particular is highly structured, with solo and ensemble passages worked out in detail. If you would like to visit Cecil's official website, log on to www.the-temple.net/taylor/ for more of his music and scheduled performances.
