John Sinclair Radio Show 754: Unit Structures

 

Episode 754 is coming from the Radio Free Amsterdam studios in Detroit’s Cass Corridor, where I’m featuring music this week in celebration of the life and music of the great pianist and composer Cecil Taylor, who passed away this month at the age of 89. From his myriads of albums since the mid-1950s I’ve selected three pieces from my own favorite Cecil Taylor album, Unit Structures on Blue Note Records, and offer a very rare hearing of the first half of Mr. Taylor’s performance with his Unit at the 1974 Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival in Exile in Windsor, Ontario.
