Cecil Taylor’s Socks


Cecil Taylor’s Socks as he performed at Town Hall Sunday Oct 26th
I photographed Cecil Taylor last night at Town Hall. He was appearing as part of the 2008 Earshot Jazz Festival. His music was sublime and transporting. it took me to a different universe. But what would bring me back to earth was looking at his socks as he played.
For more than half a century Taylor has pursued his own musical path with the utmost integrity and determination. Composing for and directing unique large ensembles, working in any number
of his well-established small groups, or performing in the solo piano setting which he has mastered, the consistent theme of Taylor’s storied life has been the extraordinary nature of his work.
