This week I've been reading Henry Threadgill's autobiography Easily Slip into Another World: A Life in Music. Therefore, lets enjoy a set from Threadgill's bands Air, Sextett, and Very Very Circus. Then, recordings form our randomly featured year in music, 1975 with Keith Jarrett, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock and Joanne Brackeen. And finally, a mini preview of artist performing at the DC Jazz Festival over Labor Day weekend. All here on the Jazz Continuum.
