Session Details: 

This performance is only listed on the Cecil Taylor Research Group source. The tracks are unknown. The Research Group derives its information from an audience member, Heinrich Smejkal and a concert schedule that does not have an exact date. There is another session listed by the Cecil Taylor Research Group source that has the date listed as "February 1970" with the same personnel. We do not know the tracks for this session either. The only information separating the two sessions with the same personnel, same vague date, etc. is the venue: the second session took place at Slug's in New York, NY. For our purposes, we combined these two sessions into one because of a lack of sufficient information, in this case.
