Now Alexander von Schlippenbach, Evan Parker and Paul Lovens get on the stage which has been restored true to the original, in order to present us with this cubistic, democratic design in the form of music: collective improvisation. No beginning. No end. Listen to how these asymmetric beings, with the classic free improvisation line-up who,
in the right place, transcend borders, dissolve them in a constructivist and cubistic, multiple-fractal manner, in order to present us so sensuously with such a “lack of illusions” (Ute van der Sanden).
Alexander von Schlippenbach: Piano
Evan Parker: Tenor Saxophone
Paul Lovens: Drums

The music of Cecil Taylor is, in my mind, a grand codex to the hidden (occult) corners of the universe and mind. He had this ability to tap into what appeared to be chaos but in truth was not. We, the listeners, are invited to welcome the challenge of understanding his decryption. This monolithic slab of recordings is evidence of the incite and talent he possessed.
Challenging is a word I don't use lightly and this comes from a lover of extreme metal. But, without challenge life is bland. Obstacle of Affliction
