Undoubtedly the most radical piano voice to emerge from the contemporary jazz and contemporary classical scenes in the twentieth century, Cecil Taylor’s appearance at the 1965 Newport Jazz Festival was a triumph. Featuring his long-time collaborators Steve Lacy on soprano sax and Denis Charles on drums the ensemble is completed by hard-bop stalwart Donald Byrd and bassist Wendell Marshall. Performed at the Newport Jazz Festival, Freebody Park, Newport, RI on July 2, 1965 for broadcast on WKCR-FM radio.

Cecil Taylor - piano; Denis Charles - drums; Steve Lacy - soprano saxophone; Donald Byrd - trumpet; Wendell Marshall - bass
