Session Details: 

This concert was performed at Bennington College's "Jazz Weekend" in Bennington, VT. It is listed only on the Cecil Taylor Research Group and not on R. Shapiro's source. The tracks played are unknown, but there the source states that there is possibly a solo piano performance by Cecil Taylor. After the "Jazz Weekend" performances, there was a panel discussion at the College about the event for which there is a transcript tape available. There is also transcript published in the College's literary journal entitled, "Silo." All of this information is taken from the Cecil Taylor Research Group, where more in-depth description of the panel is provided, such as the faculty members on the panel, the panel moderator, and that Cecil Taylor was also present.
