HENRY THREADGILL ZOOID: Tomorrow Sunny / The Revelry, Spp
Pi, 2012

FREE JAZZ – More organic bubbling from flute/sax master Threadgill and his inscrutable yet somehow upbeat band, less dense than on other recent recordings but now a sextet with the addition of cello (alongside guitar, acoustic bass guitar, trombone/tuba and drums). Each musician improvises freely, but within a framework of harmonic counterpoint and layered texture that makes this very much Threadgill’s music: instantly recognizable, endlessly fascinating.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 4, 5

1. 5:51 – light, agile with guitar and tuba prominent; sax takes over 2nd half
2. 6:31 – almost funky: string-pulling bass, optimistic flute, sawing cello solos
3. 3:34 – slow, quiet and spare with a plaintive sax moan/wail
4. 9:28 – serene bass guitar & creaky cello start it off; voice-like bass flute and mellow trombone creep through a fog-shrouded landscape
5. 10:36 – uptempo drums get this one hopping: maintains a free groove as the three strings bounce off each other, sax casually grinds it up
6. 6:30 – tons of open space: first drum & trombone; then strings and flute
