(fra forlaget)
Et vækkeur i Cecil Taylors flygel – tekster om jazz, 1945-2005 (redigeret og med forord af Lars Movin) er et udvalg bestående af 90 af Torben Ulrichs artikler og essays om jazz (og anden musik), skrevet over en periode på 60 år. Bogen spænder fra et helt tidligt portræt af klarinettisten Sidney Bechet, skrevet som 17-årig, til et essay fra 2005 om Sigmund Freud set (blandt andet) i et jazz-perspektiv, og udgør således en personlig jazzhistorie oplevet af en original og vidende skribent, som ikke blot har iagttaget udviklingen af jazzgenren på første hånd, men også har været på venskabelig fod med en række af de store mestre: fra Sidney Bechet og Louis Armstrong til John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon, Yusef Lateef, Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler, Cecil Taylor og mange, mange flere. I Torben Ulrichs skriverier, ofte baseret på rejser til mange forskellige steder i verden, betragtes jazz naturligvis som en kunstform, et personligt udtryk, men samtidig også med et skarpt blik for musikken som et sprog med kulturelle, sociale og racemæssige implikationer.

"An Alarm Clock in Cecil Taylor's Grand Piano: Writings on jazz, 1945-2005"
(from the publisher)
An Alarm Clock in Cecil Taylor’s Grand Piano: Writings on jazz, 1945-2005 is a selection of 90 articles and essays on jazz (and other music), written by Torben Ulrich over a period of 60 years. From a very early portrait of clarinetist Sidney Bechet, written at the age of 17, to a long essay on Sigmund Freud as seen (among other things) in a jazz perspective, the book offers a personal history of jazz observed by an original and knowledgeable writer who not only has experienced the development of the musical genre firsthand but also met and befriended a number of the great masters: from Sidney Bechet and Louis Armstrong to John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon, Yusef Lateef, Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler, Cecil Taylor and many, many others. In Torben Ulrich’s writings, often based on travels all over the world, jazz is certainly viewed as an art form, a personal means of expression, but at the same time also with a keen eye on the music as a language with cultural, social, and racial implications.
