Product Description

Product Description

John Taylor and his two minds. A cryptic title for the new work of the English piano player, which was released a little more than one year after his previous recording for CAM JAZZ, Giulia s Thursdays . This is a concise album, for piano only (or at least so one might assume), in which Taylor bares himself, revealing two sides of his personality: his innermost, quiet and introspective side as opposed to his more lively, vivid, and cheerful side. Are these his two minds ? A quite regular alternation of pieces in opposite moods seems to confirm this assumption. The enigmatic words with which Taylor comments on his album lead to the same conclusion. But, certainly, that s not all. It s not by chance either that Taylor talks about being in two minds whether to make this recording a solo or a duet project . Or that he uses the words balance , timing , and to play (at the same time) . The weird, innovative idea in In Two Minds is the use of two pianos to make the two tracks interlock, overlap, and match perfectly. Thus, one can delight in guessing and discovering where this comes true, starting with the long Ambleside Suite , nineteen minutes of outstanding music that captivate listeners right from the beginning. A piece that prepares them to travel through the other six pieces on the album, minor, though not less shiny, gems. All of these compositions bear Taylor s signature, except for Phrase The Second by his friend Kenny Wheeler and a tribute to Duke Ellington, Reflections In D , that closes the album.

In that the great elder statesman of British jazz plays both roles in a seamless overlay of piano on piano. There's tremendous warmth to his playing - wonderfully captured by the recording quality - great feeling, superlative touch, masterful interplay. Both compositionally and performance wise I'd put this at the top of Taylor's many, many musical achievements. Clearly he's getting even better with age.
