For our first contribution to All About Jazz's Mixcloud column, we celebrate the musical genius, free spirit and unbounded creativity of Cecil Taylor. We decided to start with one of the gems from our vaults: a historic recording of his first (and only) concert in Padua, Italy, in 1975. Listen to twenty five minutes of breathtaking musical inventions!
This installment is part of "From the Archive," a series curated by Centro d'Arte Padova that will present unreleased excerpts from the audio archives of live performances which have hosted over several decades.
