Going to be a lot of dead angels.*

Cecil Taylor binge continues:


Nefertiti the Beautiful One Has Come

*Looking just on Amazon for the five Taylor albums I just listened to on CD or vinyl, three are currently unavailable and the other two would set me back about $70 plus shipping. Bad news for angels.

You could get a Network Streamer, so you could route the stream through an audio system -- thereby not insulting music by listening to it on Bluetooth for God's sake, and saving a few angels in the balance.

Cecil Taylor, Winged Serpent (Sliding Quadrants)

Cecil Taylor and Derek Bailey, Pleistozaen mit Wasser

The latter took some tracking down, but I found it on Bandcamp where there's a 10 volume set from a Taylor residency in Berlin with some tracks available free, including the two half hour sections of this work.
