CD Reviews

A Wonderful though Strange CD
Stephen | Virginia Beach, VA USA | 09/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Threadgill can always be counted on for odd instrumental combinations and this is certainly no exception. While some of his Cds are all over the place this one is quite coherent. Threadgill employes an excellent band including guitarist Brandon Ross and Drummer J T Lewis (Check out their band Harriet Tubman) and the great Accordian/Harmonium player Tony Cedras who has also done excellent work with Pharoah Sanders. All the compositions are lengthy (most around 8-10 minutes) and quite strong. 100 Year Old Game is a favorite for me.If you're new to Treadgill, I'm not sure if there is a good place to start, but this is probably as good as any since it is the most readily available of his works."
No one like him

"Henry Threadgill is one of the most innovative and personal composers in jazz history. He's always been conscious of the jazz tradition, more than even someone like Wynton Marsalis [his early band, Air, was devoted to play pre- and 1920s era jazz in a modern context], and he's been mercurial in stretching himself and that tradition. After his seven member Sextett, and his two-tuba band Very Very Circus comes this stellar group. This should be his most popular and accessible record, and it's still uncomprimising.Under a sheen of a great, tight almost rocking group sound, Threadgills tunes stretch into unexpected melodic and structural areas, even the ballads, which are lovely and expressive. The players are never afraid to extend themselves into some free territory, if that's what is called for, but the means and purpose is always clear. If you like adventurous modern jazz and rock, you will LOVE this record!"
The best avante guarde jazz - right now

"This CD shows that jazz is still a living, breathing, sophisticated, monster, changing the rules that music thought were unbreakable. Of all of Threadgill CD's I have heard this one is certainly one of the most daring. His instrumentation, harmonies, and melodies, all have at first a very unsettling quality to them, but after awhile there haunting beauty and emotional intensity will make you change your perception of how music you think music should sound."
