cecil taylor - winged serpent

there is nothing that i could write to explain this recording. though i guess i could say that rev. frank wright is on it, which should be enough for one to get excited.

here it is, in all it's glory, the magnificent big band achievement by the one and only cecil taylor. long out of print; the cd alone could run you forty bucks...not that that should influence ones perspective of the music.

  2. A great album! My vinyl copy developed an annoying patch of surface noise that I have trouble living with. Many thanks for this posting.
