Synopsis

Amazon.com
Henry Threadgill is nominally known for his well-crafted alto sax and flute playing, as well as for his creative approach to bandleading. But Song Out of My Trees is more a vehicle for Threadgill's striking compositions. Although he's known for dense, structurally busy compositions in his Very very Circus group, Threadgill's work for guitar quartet is haunting in its brittleness and delicate harmonic lines. A chamber composer of great talent, Threadgill should gain noteriety as a maverick with Song Out of My Trees, for the CD melds tightly-woven quilts of textures and harmonic pointedness with blurry, exciting runs across different spectrums of energy, from the crowd-entrancing to the hip-shaking. --Andrew Bartlett

CD Reviews

Threadgill the Composer
Stephen | Virginia Beach, VA USA | 09/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Since Threadgill only palys on two of these tracks, its primarily about the compostitions. That doesn't mean these players aren't wonderful. Ed Cherry and Brandon Ross have been reinventing what guitar can do in a jazz band for some time now and Meyers plays some interesting harpsichord on one track and her great moving organ on another and accordian/harmonuim master Tony Cedras shows uo for a track.At close to ten minutes and containing powerful but odd vocals, Grief is the centerpiece of this set."
