Cecil Taylor, poetry reading (with David Henderson) recorded at St. Mark's Church (12 March 1997); music performance with group recorded at Village Vanguard, first set (1 April 1995). I have some of David's reading too, but not yet in digital form. I was making a recording of Cecil's 2nd set at the Vanguard that night when a waitress confiscated the tape from me; she had been tipped off by a Cornell University music prof (who I had actually met before, when Cecil was in residence there), who told her I was making an unauthorized recording. Somehow I managed to convince her I hadn't recorded the first set! Afterwards, Cecil told me they had given the tape to him, & he was glad to have it!
