Billy Taylor was quite conversant with Afro-Cuban rhythms, having worked with Machito's orchestra in the mid-Forties. He had recorded with his unit in that idiom for Roost and then, on Prestige - with Machito's rhythm section - in a mambo session. Candido, after arriving in New York from his native Havana in the early Fifties, almost immediately became part of the jazz scene. He and the Taylor trio were well-suited to one another on this session from 1954 and as Taylor says, he is "another solo voice as well as an extension of the rhythm section."

Personnel: Billy Taylor (piano), Earl May (bass), Percy Brice (drums), Candido (congas, bongos)
