In April, sotise posted a stunning Cecil Taylor Unit concert from Berlin in November 1975. This concert is from six months later, and has moments that are equally powerful - the sheer force of Jimmy Lyons' alto in the first section, and his interplay with Cecil and David S Ware, is breathtaking. The recording is from an FM broadcast and is also very good. Many thanks to abbcccus for reseeding this recently on dime.
