In 1956 drummer Art Taylor formed a group called Taylor’s Wailers. Donald Byrd and Charlie Rouse were members of the working group that debuted at The Pad, a Greenwich Village nightclub on Sheridan Square booked by Bob Reisner, the man who had run the legendary Open Door Sessions. In 1957 Taylor recorded the Wailers for Prestige, adding the alto saxophone of Jackie McLean to the front line. Two of the highlights are the Thelonious Monk compositions, “Well, You Needn’t” and “Off Minor,” with arrangements by Thelonious himself. One track, “C.T.A.,” by Jimmy Heath, is from another session featuring John Coltrane backed by Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Taylor, a potent Prestige studio combination in those days. There have been many distinguished drummer-leaders in jazz. One expects their groups to be rhythmically exciting. Taylor’s Wailers are no exception to this swinging heritage. •Cut from the analogue masters by renowned mastering engineer Kevin Gray •200-gram pressing by Quality Record Pressings has a flat edge profile and deep groove label, true to the original LP •Deluxe high-gloss tip-on album jacket Art Taylor, drums Donald Byrd, trumpet Jackie McLean, alto saxophone Charlie Rouse, tenor saxophone John Coltrane, tenor saxophone Ray Bryant, piano Red Garland, piano Wendell Marshall, bass Paul Chambers, bass
