Two of the giants of the saxophone are featured in this episode of OMJ: Henry Threadgill and his longest-running band Zooid (he plays more with this band than others) and the late, great Sam Rivers from his archive of unrecorded music released by NoBusiness Records. Rivers leads one of his not-too-common guitar quartets. Also from NoBusiness comes another historic release by Japan's Itaru Oki and new tunes from Serbian string player Szilard Mezi. He's fronting Tubass, four basses and a tuba. Little Rock keyboardist Christopher Parker hooked up with a wonderful band of New York heavies to make Soul Food, while two of the leading lights in today's jazz world, Jane Ira Bloom and Allison Miller, hooked up via the internet over a series of Tuesdays and improvised their way to their new release called, yep, Tues Days . Enjoy these and much more.
