A Blue Note essential, The Ultimate is part of the Blue Note 75 anniversary vinyl reissue campaign, featuring 100 titles; key to the initiative is high-quality audio at affordable prices. For the second of Cecil Taylor's two Blue Note albums (following Unit Structures), the innovative pianist utilized a sextet comprised of trumpeter Bill Dixon, altoist Jimmy Lyons, both Henry Grimes and Alan Silva on bass, and drumer Andrew Cyrille.
