Cecil Taylor - The Eighth (1989)

“Taylor's art confronts nature so organically because it embraces the same attitudes, makes the same demands. Rejecting frivolous entertainment, it is ritual--a rite of creation that accepts paradox as it attempts to transcend it" ~ Art Lange

Thanks--I saw this version of the unit in 1980 and they explored very similar territory. I have the truncated LP but never got around to getting the unedited version, so: cool!
