Art Taylor was considered as one of the elite Jazz drummer of the 50’s and 60’s. This album is a real “Classic,” right from the first track (“Syeeda’s Song Flute”) you can hear its uniqueness and as only happens when an experience drummer is in charge, as in this case with Art Taylor calling the shots. As we have seen before this 1960 recording, drummers like Art Blakey, Kenny Clarke and Max Roach added another dimension to the output. In “A.T.’s Delight” Art Taylor has Cuban percussionist Carlos “Patato” Valdes providing his feedback with the conga, he appears in three of the six songs (“Epistrophy,” “Move” and “Cookoo and Fungi.” This album is rarely spoken about and for this reason I wrote this sort of reminder to the Jazz Con Class Radio listeners/readers. Enjoy!

About the album:

Despite being a mainstay on many a Prestige and Blue Note session in the 1950s and ’60s, jazz drummer Art Taylor didn’t get much of the spotlight. That makes albums like DELIGHT all the more valuable for lovers of the hard-bop drumming style (i.e., Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach).

"As a college English and Fine Arts professor, I have spent many long days and nights grading and writing papers with your station as my soundtrack. I can't thank you enough for the perfect score for such work, which I've been leaning on for the last four years. I've always been obsessed with jazz, but like many fans, I'm selective and looking to avoid the obvious. Jazz Con Class hits all the right notes, and while I love to hear my favorites (Bird, Trane, Monk, Morgan, Hubbard, Blakey), the variety of deep cuts is what brings me back. Thank you for the thoughtful intent and love for this music that shines through in every playlist."

"We are very lucky to have Jose and his dedication to play the best of
America's finest and original music. Here's hoping that this obvious
labor of love continues for a very long time. A huge thank you is in
order!"
