Waldron was a lifelong student of classical piano-he often played sonatas for pleasure, and recorded pieces by Chopin, Brahms, Satie, and Bartók-and he brought a classical sense of form and introspection to his solo work. In Free at Last and Black Glory, a thrilling 1971 trio album, there are echoes of the free-jazz pianist Cecil Taylor-for whom Waldron would later write two tributes, Free for . and Variations on a Theme by Cecil Taylor -but the resemblance reflects kinship rather than influence: Waldron had not left behind hard bop to become anyone’s disciple.
