Session Details: 

This is a live Cecil Taylor-Sunny Murray duo (plus voices) performance at the 29th Total Music Meeting in Berlin, Germany. A private tape (audience recording) of the performance exists. We do not know the title of the tracks; they are referenced as "untitled improvisation" and that is also how we are reflecting the tracks. We know the length of the tracks. Vocals are only on tracks 1 and 3 (and this has been reflected in the session as well). 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]>.
