About this Item

Henry Threadgill's Zooid
A rare Washington appearance from Henry Threadgill, "one of the most important living composers in and around the jazz idiom" (Nate Chinen) and a dazzling alto saxophonist and flutist with masterly improvisational skills.
Event Date
October 25, 2013
-  At the edge of the jazz avant-garde since the early 1960s, composer-performer Henry Threadgill operates within a sophisticated, multi-sourced musical language developed over decades, since his early years with the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. It's a language uniquely his own, one that his Zooid colleagues speak fluently.
