Thanks, just pre-ordered.

Also see a Georgia ann Muldrow remix of "Clear and Distinct". Got that one too, DL only, but just one track, works for me.

Pre ordered as well.

Henry’s run on Pi is starting to creep up high on the list for “best run by a jazz artist on a single label”.  I like that the albums have tended to be on the shorter side.

In my Bandcamp cart (along with another 8-9 CD’s) - I love the most recent releases / and I enjoy the concise times of the pieces and the recordings yet there is plenty of improvisation.

Just got this in the mail.  Great music.  Doesn’t yet stand out to me relative to the other Zooid albums but that’s a very high bar.

The album’s notes includes a brief dedication from Henry:

Dedicating this music

At this time

In this moment 

To, in their greatness 

I will not

Shall not

Forget: Ahmad Jamal, Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter, Charles Lloyd, Archie Shepp - - - - Artist

Time…. 19, 20, 21….

Starting my morning with Poof...it's amazing how easy it is to listen to this music...it's not at all "easy" music, but is incredible easy to listen to and follow the stories.

Truly this is mastery in every regard. And at under 40 minutes playing time, even more so. There is a time for every time.

Just smoked some weed and put on "Air Time"...one of life's rich pleasures. 

I really only know Mr. Threadgill's Air and Sextett output (although I did get to see Zooid live a couple years ago). Need to dig into the rest of his body of work. Just ordered POOF. 

That dedication is moving -- I hope Maestros Jamal, Rollins, Shorter, Lloyd, and Shepp have all received it.

Coincidentally I received 2 orders for the Air Time lp today, both orders from the Atlanta area. Maybe 2 pals smoked some too.

Ha! Listening again today sober as a judge and it continues to be a rich pleasure. I know backlogs are crazy right now, but have you considered doing vinyl reissues of any of the Art Ensemble titles?

This interview with Henry Threadgill (conducted by novelist Frederic Tuten) just dropped at BOMB. https://bombmagazine.org/articles/henry-threadgill/

 Very nice. Inspired me to listen to Air Time. Henry’s flute in the opening track is great. Highlight is “R.B.” with just about the greatest bowed bass playing ever by the *great* Fred Hopkins. What a wonderful group.

His reminisces about his parents are superior context!

Oops, thanks Chuck

Air Time was on your label and it’s even better than Air Mail (which is on Black Saint)
