Cecil Taylor is a piano prodigy and star in the free jazz-experimental music world. He performs tonight with butoh prodigy Min Tanaka.
I have been very, very, very fortunate to see them perform together at Aku Aku before an audience of twenty. Other close friends have performed with Tanaka san on his family farm. Both performers are intimate with experimental art.
Not experimental for play, they both have demonstrated experimental risk taking for real over years.
Tonight Cecil Taylor, piano, engages Min Tanaka, movement. It is sold out but there is a line up to experience.
