1/28/13: C​.​T. With a Fringe on Bottom

There is a not so veiled reference to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma classic Surrey with a Fringe on Top here. C.T. refers to Cecil Taylor (see earlier January tracks: 1/24/13 and another from the same date for more about him.) So this is, if the title is to be believed, the sweet R & H tune as filtered through the mind of the great avant garde pianist. But of course, it’s not through the mind of the great avant garde pianist; it’s through my mind, which is sub-filtering through the mind of the great avant garde pianist—which is quite different.
