Album Description

We're proud to launch the "FMP Archive Edition," which features previously unreleased material from the vaults, with this Cecil Taylor live performance from 1996! His large ensemble work has never been documented enough, so this is an especially welcome addition to his discography. The first three tracks feature different permutations of the group essaying musical variations of the theme. The entire piece comes together in the 36-minute final track, featuring Taylor at the piano leading the band through a storming but nuanced number that launches the Berlin audience to its feet. You'll likely have the same reaction

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
