CECIL TAYLOR: Michigan State University, April 15th 1976 (CD)

Michigan State University, April 15th 1976 (CD)

Capturing the groundbreaking Cecil Taylor Unit's second set at the Power Center, Michigan State University at Ann Arbor, on Thursday April 15th 1976, this exciting set was recorded for broadcast on WCBN-FM's Jazz Alive program. Featuring Taylor on piano, backed by his long-term sideman Jimmy Lyons (alto sax), David S. Ware (tenor sax), Raphe Malik (trumpet) and Marc Edwards (drums), it offers a fascinating glimpse into Taylor's uncompromising vision, and is presented here with background notes and rare images.
