Session Details: 

This session is the recording of Cecil Taylor's debut album, "Jazz Advance," recorded by the Transition label.

Note: while the Cecil Taylor Research Group source places "Steve Lacy" as part of the personnel, Shapiro's source specifies that he plays only on tracks 2 & 4; so for our purposes, we have not included Steve Lacy as part of the overall personnel.
