Tomorrow Sunny / The Revelry, Spp
Released: Jun 2012
Label: Pi Recordings
In recent years, jazz great Henry Threadgill has been writing music based on a serialized approach to intervals. Sometimes the product sounds like atonal classical music -- except it grooves like nothing Schoenberg ever wrote. This is the third recording by Threadgill's standing band Zooid (now with cello), and it's their best yet: His system's jagged complexity challenges his players to find original paths to lyricism. Liberty Ellman's guitar does that throughout, but it's the bandleader's immortal alto sax that dominates "A Day Off" and "Ambient Pressure Thereby." Instant classic.
