Session Details: 

Live performance at the "Festival of Contemporary Art." This session is only listed on the Cecil Taylor Research Group source. As in many of Taylor's other live performances, there is missing information: we don't know which tracks were played. The Group writes that it derived its information from an audience member, Heinrich Smejkal, who had a "DOWN BEAT" issue (dated May 30, 1968).
