Session Details: 

Released by the Prestige label in US, and released by Shandar label in France. The Cecil Taylor Research Group has this session listed as "July 28, 1969" but recognizes that there is the "July 29, 1969" date listed on other sources, and notes that it might have been a midnight session (which explains the date discrepancy). Shapiro's source points out that while the notes in Prestige say that the recording took place in Paris, it actually took place "just outside Nice," and the Group source specifies this even further by writing that the session was recorded in St. Paul de Vence "which is about 30-40 km northwest of Nice in southern France."
