After playing in the bands of Howard McGhee, Coleman Hawkins, Buddy DeFranco, Bud Powell, and George Wallington from 1948 to 1957, jazz drummer Art Taylor formed his own group, the Wailers.

Donald Byrd and Charlie Rouse were members of the working group that debuted at The Pad, a Greenwich Village nightclub. In 1957 Taylor recorded the Wailers for Prestige, adding the alto saxophone of Jackie McLean to the front line. Two of the highlights are the Thelonious Monk compositions, "Well, You Needn't" and "Off Minor," with arrangements by Thelonious himself. One track, "C.T.A.," by Jimmy Heath, is from another session featuring John Coltrane backed by Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Taylor, a potent Prestige studio combination in those days. There have been many distinguished drummer-leaders in jazz. One expects their groups to be rhythmically exciting. Taylor's Wailers are no exception to this swinging heritage.

Recorded February 25 and March 22, 1957 at Van Gelder Studio, New Jersey. Mono. Originally released by Prestige (PRLP 7117). This reissue released in 2013 by Analogue Productions.
