Read "In for a Penny, In for a Pound" reviewed by Troy Collins


Renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist Henry Threadgill has led a number of critically acclaimed groups since his formative days as a founding member of the AACM, but none have endured as long as Zooid.

Read "In For A Penny, In For A Pound" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Fresh off his significant contribution to Jack DeJohnette's Made In Chicago (ECM, 2015), composer/saxophonist/flautist Henry Threadgill and his most long-established group, Zooid, return for the ensemble's most creative and ambitious collection.

Read "Tomorrow Sunny / The Revelry, Spp" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Non dovrebbe essere una sorpresa per nessuno sentir dire che Henry Threadgill è da almeno venticinque anni (bypassando la nodale esperienza collettiva di Air, quindi) una delle figure-guida del jazz internazionale, seppur meno reclamizzata di altre, a loro volta di indiscutibile statura, ma magari un po' più inclini a lisciare il pelo all'uditorio. Questo nuovo lavoro ...

Henry Threadgill Zooid: This Brings Us to Volume II

Read "This Brings Us to Volume II" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Che Henry Threadgill sia uno dei compositori più originali e significativi della musica del nostro tempo non lo si scopre adesso e non lo si scopre necessariamente con questo disco [ma qualsiasi punto di approdo al suo mondo è estremamente interessante in una carriera dal segno formale così importante]: dagli inizi degli anni Settanta, attraverso le ...
