Abstract: For a commuting n-tuple $ a = ({a_1}, \ldots ,{a_n})$ of elements of a unital $ {C^ \ast }$-algebra $ \mathcal{A}$, we establish a matricial identity linking the self-commutator of a to the $ {2^{n - 1}} \times {2^{n - 1}}$ matrix $ \hat a$ that detects the Taylor invertibility of a. As a consequence, we obtain a simple proof of a result of D. Xia (Oper. Theory: Adv. Appl. 48 (1990), 423-448), which states that for commuting t-hyponormal n-tuples, $ {\sigma _T}(a) = {\sigma _r}(a)$.
