"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." - JAZZ IMAGES
