Bad Radio 5: Terry Riley, Part II

Bad Radio is a secret archive of shows devoted to a society of 20th century avant-garde musicians and their influences. The fifth installment looks at Terry Riley.

From 1962-1964 Riley toured Europe, participating in “happenings,” street theater and jazz concerts. While in Europe, he gave his first "All Night Flight" concerts. These were marathon, night-long improvised solo performances for which he played saxophone and keyboards.
