Cecil Taylor – Streams and Chorus of Seed – Dark To Themselves

 Dark to Themselves is a continuous 61-plus-minute performance by pianist Cecil Taylor and his 1976 quintet which  includes   trumpeter Raphe Malik, his longtime altoist Jimmy Lyons, tenor saxophonist David S. Ware, and drummer Marc Edwards. There is a quick theme along with brief transitions that form the composition “Streams and Chorus of Seed,” but the bulk of the performance is taken up by spontaneous and intense solos. I have included 43 minutes of the piece. Recorded June 18, 1976, live at the 17th Yugoslavian Jazz Festival in Ljubljana and released on Enja Records.
