What do folks think about this?  It's a nice summation of Zooid's work, though not necessarily their best.

Well - he did win the Pulitzer prize for it. I like it too.

Well if it was up to me he'd have gotten the Pulitzer for This Brings Us to vols 1 & 2 :)

I liked it a lot, in an "autumnal" kind of way.

Hosted by Nadia Sirota, I see!

I liked her this record:

Not at all "Baroque", at least not as you would think.

Also good to hear Henry playing. The guy's a treasure as player as well as composer.

I see it at bandcamp, but not on the Pi website or anyplace else.

Yeah it is kind of weird; usually Pi releases are on Amazon and their own website months before release.

Henry's previous album (Old Locks & Irregular Verbs) was also released early in some format.

Anyway, this is wonderful news.  Anybody have a tracklist?

Update: I bought an advance copy and listened to it one time so far.  Great stuff - anybody who's liked what Henry has produced since 2009 will enjoy this too.

Good news - apparently Pi has also recorded or will soon record Double Up Plus (dedicated to Ahmad Jamal, Barry Harris, Eddie Palmieri, Muhal Richard Abrams, Cecil Taylor and Joseph Kubera).  Not sure about release date.

so now Pi is releasing 2 albums by Henry in 2018!!!  Happy days :)

That is good news. 😀 

 

When I feel a twinge of disappointment that Henry isn’t playing on this release I remind myself that a don’t feel any loss of the Duke isn’t at the piano on many an Ellington release. Same for Gerald Wilson plus countless other top flight composers/ arrangers.
