Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Tomorrow Sunny / The Revelry, Spp is the new
release from Henry Threadgill, whose prior releases
This Brings Us To, Volumes 1 & 2 topped many
critics year end lists in 2009 and 2010. The
CD features Zooid, the longest-running band of
Threadgill s 40-year career, which now includes
Christopher Hoffman on cello, rounding out the band
to Threadgill s originally intended instrumentation.

Review

Threadgill has long been one of the most
thrillingly elusive composers in and around the jazz
idiom: a sly maestro of unconventional timbres,
bristling counterpoint and tough but slippery
rhythms. --New York Times

The jazz world is coming to realize that he s a true
idiosyncratic great ... Threadgill s music staggers
and lurches and creates dissonances, and it still
brings the mad-scientist funk. --Npr

Bewitching, if tough to pin down ... Resisting
familiar chord changes, scales, and overt structure,
the album won t be the easiest of listens for some,
but somehow it never sounds the same way twice.
As its mysteries unfurl, This Brings Us To ultimately
remains rewarding simply by being so much fun to
follow. --Los Angeles Times

This new Henry Threadgill Zooid disc from Pi Recordings contains six new compositions recorded in December 2011. It's three quarters of an hour of the highest quality music. The last two releases from this unit (This Brings Us To, Vol. 1 and This Brings Us To, Vol. 2) were from the same late 2008 sessions, so this represents an update three years later.

There are no radical changes to the sound or method. The most significant is the addition of Christopher Hoffman on cello, making Zooid a sextet. He joins the preexisting lineup of Threadgill on alto sax and flutes, Liberty Ellman on acoustic guitar, Jose Davila on tuba and trombone, Stomu Takeishi on acoustic bass, and Elliot Humberto Kavee on drums. This takes Zooid closer to the original concept (as found on Up Popped the 2 Lips from 2001), but with cello instead of oud. Hoffman sounds great, and fits perfectly into this tight ensemble. This is not Threadgill's first use of cello -- several of his Sextett recordings from the 1980s include Dierdre Murray on cello. (The ironically named Sextett, with two "t"s, was actually a septet.)

As with the previous Pi recordings, there are no liner notes included with the disc, but they can be found on the label's website.

If you know the music of Henry Threadgill there is nothing to say. Poetic and beautiful . With the same group, Zoid, from the his last two records, the sound is always different and fascinating. Is pure and clear. Liberty Ellman on guitar, Jose Davila on trombone and tuba, Christofer Hoffman on cello, Stomu Takeishi on bass and Elliot Humberto Kavee on drums make a exploration into the sound of Threadgill. In same way you must forget everything before hear it, but after hear it you are in another world. The best guide to hear the CD are his own words: "I cannot tell or say anything about the music, no expectation suggested...the individual listener, let the music is all I can offer". But what a great music

A highly enjoyable CD. And though "Where is your cup?", "This brings us to Vol.2" and "Everybody's mouths a book" are personally better for me, this one has a lot fine music. A good addition to the H.Threadgill's collection at home. Recommended.
