Dark to Themselves is a continuous 61-plus-minute performance by pianist Cecil Taylor and his 1976 quintet (which also includes such fiery players as trumpeter Raphe Malik, his longtime altoist Jimmy Lyons, tenor saxophonist David S. Ware, and drummer Marc Edwards). There is a quick theme along with brief transitions that form the composition "Streams and Chorus of Seed," but the bulk of the passionate performance is taken up by spontaneous and intense solos. Listeners with very open ears, and longtime fans of Taylor's, can consider this explosive performance essential.

Pianist Cecil Taylor formed a very unique sounding band for his Blue Note Records debut in 1966. Taylor began experimenting throughout the 50s and 60s, his music became more complex and developed in a way that was different then other jazz forms of the time. The album opened up new possibilities in the realm of jazz, allowing musicians to develop unique forms of musical exchange. The unusual septet voicing includes two bass players.

Attraverso i case studies di quattro musicisti geniali ma spesso avversati dai contemporanei perché considerati troppo "difficili" o "sperimentali" - i pianisti Cecil Taylor e Herbie Nichols, i sassofonisti Ornette Coleman e Jackie McLean - Spellman offre un resoconto aspro e disincantato del conflitto tra le esigenze dell'entertainment e quelle dell'integrità artistica, tra le asfissie del mercato discografico e gli orizzonti potenzialmente infiniti della ricerca musicale. Ciò che emerge da queste pagine, nel vivido racconto in prima persona dei protagonisti, è una vicenda di battaglie quotidiane per la sopravvivenza, fra difficoltà economiche, droghe e discriminazioni razziali; ma anche una storia di speranza e solidarietà, di inaspettati riscatti e rari, luminosi successi…

By the time of his Paris concert, Cecil Taylor's quartet had reached a particularly high level of musical communication. Not only did altoist Jimmy Lyons (whose sound but not choice of notes was sometimes close to Charlie Parker's) find a place for himself in the dense ensembles, but one can hear him and the pianist/leader echoing each other's phrases in spots.
