Threadgill

According to popmatters, Henry Threadgill has a new album out in honor of Butch Morris. I used to catch Threadgill every chance I got when I lived in NYC in the early 2000s…usually at the now defunct Tonic.

Many records of his do I own, too.

I had the distinct pleasure of encountering him sitting on a stoop in the East Village one summer afternoon, probably in 2005. He was smoking a cig and chatting with a young black man. I said, “Hey, are you Henry Threadgill?”  He said, “Yes, I am.” I told him I was a huge fan, he said thanks, and on I walked.

Man, there’s times I miss NYC!

Hey, buy Threadgill’s new album: http://www.popmatters.com/review/henry-threadgill-ensemble-double-up-old-locks-and-irregular-verbs/

He’s good for you.
