Cecil Taylor’s latest record: An 80th birthday commemoration.
Duet recordings with Tony Oxley, selected by the musicians from ten hours recorded during their two weeks at New York’s Village Vanguard in 2008.

This deluxe collector’s item has been issued in a very limited, numbered edition—475 copies worldwide—on vinyl LP only.
A 2-disc gatefold set, the record features the cream of the duo's two runs at the Vanguard last year, and includes exclusive original poetry by Cecil Taylor and paintings by Tony Oxley.  In addition to celebrating Mr. Taylor’s 80th year, this release honors Mr. Oxley’s 70th birthday just before the performances occurred.

AILANTHUS / ALTISSIMA is being sold in numbered order: Items #1-50 for direct sale at performances; #65-475 are being offered for internet sale.


Triple Point Records would like to thank Laura Welikson, Mark Lamb, and Robert D. Bielecki for the bedrock support that has enabled this project.
