CECIL TAYLOR - BLUE NOTES - MANFRED SCHOOF - MISHA MENGELBERG - THEO LOEVENDIE "FRANCE - ANTIBES+" (1964-69)
This is not music or more exactly it is music but with footage from the respective concerts.
Culled from the French TV.
Among others we have the first concert of the Blue Notes in Europe, just arriving from South-Africa. After the concert and some weeks playing in Antibes at the beach (and elsewhere) they embarked to Zürich were they got offered Dollar Brand's place at the Cafe Africana.
The movie (~ 1:40) is not in high definition but the quality is easily good enough to enjoy these concerts and in case of Taylor's Unit something rather special.
