Session Details: 

This is a live duo (Cecil Taylor-Max Roach) performance. There are a total of five tracks performed, the first three are solos and the last two are duo performances. A private tape (audience recording) of the performance exists. We do not know the title of the tracks; they are referenced as either solo or duo "untitled improvisations" and that is also how we are reflecting the tracks. We do know the length of the tracks. Although we otherwise have little information on this session, we are including it: 1) to stay true to the sources that we are using, and 2) in hopes that someone will come forward with additional information. If you have access to additional information/specifics about this session, or have access to the tape, please contact our Program Director at <[email protected]>.
