"The World of Cecil Taylor" was the pianist’s first LP for the short-lived Candid label. Cecil Taylor’s work for the label took place during the first years of his career as a leader.At the time he taped The World of Cecil Taylor, he had only recorded four albums: Jazz Advance (1956), Looking Ahead! (1958), Hard Driving Jazz (1958) with John Coltrane, and Love for Sale (1959). Some of the numbers the pianist chose to release were improvised one-takes, while others were tried various times. The most notable case is that of “Air”, for which 29 takes were needed in order to produce the master take approved by Taylor.
New York, October 12 (A2 & B1-B2) & October 13 (A1, A3), 1960.
