Full-length, legendary Cecil Taylor Orchestra concert from Jazz Jamboree 1984 feat. greatest names on American and European free jazz scene.

In 1984 Cecil Taylor came to Poland for the second time. His first performance in Poland was in 1968 in Warsaw Philharmony where he presented a solo piano recital. After 16 years he returned to the Jazz Jamboree festival but that time with a large group of internationally acclaimed and most important improvisers on the free jazz scene. The lineup was incredible. Two great trumpeters one from Poland, Tomasz Stańko another from Italy, Enrico Rava. In the reed section, long time Cecil's collaborator, legendary altoist Jimmy Lyons with his wife bassoonist Karen, John Tchicai, Frank Wright Jr. on tenor saxophones, phenomenal trombonists Conrad Bauer, iconic vibraphone and bass clarinet player Gunter Hampel and finally a gorgeous rhythm section with Henry Martinez on drums and great William Parker.
Together they played for over one hour set of unbelievable, strong, and magnificent music in front of the hall lined to the brim. Here you have the whole Cecil Taylor concert with Music From Two Continents.
