Session Details: 

This performance is only listed on the Cecil Taylor Research Group source. We don't know much about the tracks. The source writes that the first track is an announcement, which is 0:15 in length. The second track is referred to as "fragments of a dedication to Duke Ellington," which is 78:27 in length and "incomplete." There are two venues listed, and it is confusing which was the venue where the performance took place - for our purposes, we listed both of the venues on the source. The Research Group derives its information from Rick Lopez's Sam Rivers discography, a tape, and Jan Strom's Jimmy Lyons sessionography. All of this information is from the Cecil Taylor Research Group source.
