NEW FROM MOSAIC RECORDS: THE COMPLETE NOVUS & COLUMBIA RECORDINGS OF HENRY THREADGILL & AIR

Henry Threadgill was a founding member of the now legendary Association for the Advancement of Creative Music (AACM) of Chicago, but before and since he has been a founding member of the Henry Threadgill college of making music that matters. And to Threadgill, all music matters—Charlie Parker and street marching bands and Poulenc and Balinese dance. Now, this first big collection of his music provides an opportunity to hear how those ideas collided, entwined, and rainbowed across an almost uninterrupted span of nearly 20 years.

These eight CDs are filled with music that was carefully imagined, deeply felt, and wonderfully executed. The period begins in 1978 with Open Air Suit, hailed for its complexity and for the uncanny way musicians could instantly communicate through improvisation, The set moves from three albums by Air and one by Threadgill's “X-75" to three on RCA with his seven-man Sextett and ends with his three albums for Columbia. Along the way it unveils for the first time ever, a completely unheard Arista/Novus X-75 session from 1979.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
