Billy Taylor's best known recordings from the early years of his career were made for Prestige. However, he had already recorded under his own name as well as with other leaders for a variety of smaller companies well before this. CLC #1137 and this CD include his complete studio sessions that pre-date his work on Prestige. Most of these dates have rarely been re-issued before. Volume two of his recordings in chronological order opens with four items made for Brunswick followed by an extended session for Atlantic. All eight tracks were issued on LP when this medium was still relatively new. This may partly explain why these standards by Taylor with a wonderful rhythm section are so little known.
