Favorite CDs
Cross Section
“A classic! Billy features on eight songs with his trio of 1953 (which included bassist Earl May and drummer Percy Brice); the four originals (which alternate with standards) were all dedicated to disc jockeys of the time.”

With Candido
“Having already dedicated half of Cross Section to numbers with Machito's band, it was no surprise that his 1954 follow-up, Trio with Candido, would feature more Latin touches - this time with star Cuban conga player Candido.”

My Fair Lady Loves Jazz
“The focus throughout is on Billy’s 1957 trio (which included bassist Earl May anddrummer Ed Thigpen) but Quincy Jones' arrangements for seven horns are quite memorable.”

Uptown
“Billy regular trio of 1960 (which also includes bassist Henry Grimes and drummer Ray Mosca) sounds quite tight on this live set, performing a wide-ranging program within the modern mainstream of the early '60s.”

It’s A Matter of Pride
“A particularly well-constructed session by Billy Taylor with bassist Christian McBride, drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith, the congas of Ray Mantilla and, on three tracks, tenor-saxophonist Stanley Turrentine; Grady Tate also contributes two warm ballad vocals.
