Cecil Taylor - Montréal 1985

Since my previous Taylor share was rather popular, and to sweeten up the wait for the remaining bits of that Berlin piano night, here's another Taylor set in good sound.

It features a transitional band, with Lyons and Frank Wright on saxophones, William Parker on bass, and Henry Martinez on drums.

Thanks to Nocturnal_n for taping it and sharing it over on dime!
