Session Details: 

This session is listed only on R. Shapiro's source (and not Cecil Taylor Research Group's source). It is part of the "rare broadcasted performances" collection from Ozone. Shapiro writes that some sources say that the bassist might be Alan Silva. There is a broadcast tape available, but that broadcast was "recorded for BBS broadcast by WNET-TV, NYC" (Shapiro). The taping was even followed by a panel discussion but the taping is believed to be rehearsals rather than concert performances (Shapiro).
