Cecil Taylor
That man is capable of playing ten different notes with ten different fingers, ten different dynamics, ten different attacks and ten different tempi. There is no musician I've ever met, including Igor Stravinsky and Pierre Boulez, who come anywhere near having the abilities that Cecil Taylor has.
Taylor quotes
The most formidable pianism these ears have heard: This is the great divide of American piano playing.
I don't expect people who listen to Emerson, Lake, and Palmer to come hear me. I accept that reality.

Taylor Cecil quotes
Sometimes when it goes really well, you wonder, "who's that at the piano?"
