The World Of Cecil Taylor is the fifth studio album by radical, free jazz pianist pioneer, Cecil Taylor.  Taylor's music is often described as ahead of its time. And it’s easy to imagine what the reaction of the average jazz fan was to this recording. It is arguably a tremendous departure from what jazz was widely considered to be at the time.

Recorded October of 1960 at the Nola Penthouse Studios in New York by Candid A&R and producer Nat Hentoff, released in 1961, and featuring saxophonist Archie Shepp on one of his earliest recording dates. The LP includes extraordinary liner notes by Hentoff, jazz critic Martin Williams, and bassist Buell Neidlinger. - Candid Records
