"Billy Taylor has long been an engaging pianist, and this 1960 studio date, originally done for Sesac Repertory, is no exception. His dozen originals nicely showcase his abilities in a trio setting, which also includes bassist Henry Grimes and drummer Ray Mosca. Highlights include his swinging opener, "Warming Up," the Gospel-flavored "That's Were It Is," the upbeat blues "Don't Bug Me," and the subtle closer, "No After Taste." Although none of them caught on well enough to remain in his repertoire for the long haul, this CD is worth your consideration if you enjoy potent bop piano in a variety of moods, even though it is kind of short by LP standards."
