    Drummer Art Taylor, who spent many years in Europe, re-emerged as an important bandleader with this Enja CD. Taylor's group (called "Taylor's Wailers") features four Young Lions: the fine tenor Willie Williams, altoist Abraham Burton (most heavily influenced by his teacher Jackie McLean), pianist Marc Cary and bassist Tyler Mitchell, in addition to the drummer/leader. On a variety of tunes from the 1950s and '60s (highlighted by "Hi-Fly," "Soul Eyes" and "Gingerbread Boy") the musicians play some high-quality modern hard bop. Enjoyable music. ~ Scott Yanow

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (7/92, p.38) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...reaffirms the jazz values of the '50s and '60s: bebop, hard-bop, and the post-bop experimentation of John Coltrane..."
    Option (July-Aug./92, p.128) - "...rolls along with the unruffled grace of Coltrane's early work, or '50s-era Miles Davis...While Taylor is not as famous as Blakey or Max Roach, in his own subtle way he is just as powerful...there's enough freshness here to get anyone's attention..."
