Session Details: 

This performance is only listed on the Cecil Taylor Research Group source. We don't know much about the tracks, we know the lengths played. There are two listed tracks. The source refers to the first track as an announcement, which is 1:31 in length. The second track is referred to as "fragments of a dedication to Duke Ellington," which is 49:40 in length. The Research Group derives its information from Rick Lopez's Sam Rivers discography, a tape, and Ed Hazell's unpublished Cecil Taylor discography, where he lists this session under the date November 10, 1969 and the length as 48:00. All of this information is from the Cecil Taylor Research Group source.
