In for a Penny, In for a Pound is the latest installment in saxophonist/ flutist/composer Henry Threadgill’s ongoing exploration of his singular system for integrating composition with group improvisation. The music for his band Zooid – his main music-making vehicle for the past fourteen years and the longest running band of his illustrious forty plus-year career – is no less than his attempt to completely deconstruct standard jazz form, steering the improvisatory language towards an entirely new system based on preconceived series of intervals. His compositions create a polyphonic platform that encourages each musician to improvise with an ear for counterpoint and, in the process, creating striking new harmonies.

Fresh off his significant contribution to Jack DeJohnette's Made In Chicago (ECM, 2015), composer/saxophonist/flautist Henry Threadgill and his most long-established group, Zooid, return for the ensemble's most creative and ambitious collection. Almost thirty years ago, Threadgill told Chicago's Pulitzer winning writer, Studs Terkel, of the influence of marching bands that he saw in that city's frequent street parades. That influence—along with that of his founding status in the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians—are apparent in the adventurous collection In For a Penny, In For a Pound.

"Tomorrow Sunny / The Revelry, Spp" is the highly awaited new release from Henry Threadgill, whose prior releases "This Brings Us To, Volumes 1 & 2" topped many critics' year end lists in 2009 and 2010. He has been called by The New York Times "one of the most thrillingly elusive composers in and around the jazz idiom. He's an amazing jazz musician, and at the same time, when you listen to his writing, it could sound like one of the American masters." The CD features Zooid, which has been together for the last 12 years, making it the longest-running band of Threadgill's illustrious 40 year career.

The premiere of Old Locks and Irregular Verbs—Henry Threadgill's tribute to his longtime friend and colleague, musical pioneer Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris—was easily one of the most talked about events at the 2014 edition of New York's Winter Jazzfest. The buzz factor and expectation surrounding this work and the band performing it was so strong, in fact, that it was scheduled for two performance slots. For any other act at a festival that prides itself on diversity, that might've been programming overkill; in this particular case, it seemed perfectly appropriate.

Paramount among independent modern jazz record labels, Black Saint was founded in Italy back in 1975 and grew to encompass more than 190 albums, while its comparatively mainstream sister enterprise, Soul Note, emerged in 1979 and eventually racked up a phenomenal index of more than 350 releases. After purchasing both gold mines, CAM Jazz began reissuing the cream of these catalogs in affordable box sets, setting the stage for a full-scale reassessment of modern creative music. The Henry Threadgill edition contains no less than seven remastered albums, packaged like little LPs in perfectly reproduced jackets, each with the original print scaled down in miniature but still legible with the aid of a magnifying lens.

The inspiring collaborative duo For Living Lovers features guitarist Brandon Ross and bassist Stomu Takeishi in moving musical dialogue. The duo has worked together for some time and in many settings. Their language has become unique to them, though there are elements of jazz, classical, and folk music. Revealing Essence, the duo’s first recording, is a marvelous view into their sound world, one built with a focus on space as much as sound.

Any concerns that a personnel change would affect the mercurial disposition of the "terrorist bebop band" known as Mostly Other People Do the Killing have been confirmed as unfounded by Mauch Chunk, the wily ensemble's eighth studio recording for Hot Cup Records. Trumpeter Peter Evans, an original member since the core quartet's founding in 2003, left after the release of last year's Blue—a perplexingly pointless note-for-note remake of Miles Davis' iconic Kind of Blue (Columbia, 1959).

Since he released the completely solo For Alto in 1968, the accepted image of Anthony Braxton has been that he is more a theoretician and art music composer than a jazz musician. Therefore, it might seem strange that Mosaic Records is giving his Complete Arista Recordings one of their fabled box set treatments. But Braxton is both – and much more. This set – as well as the original Arista recordings – were produced by Michael Cuscuna, Mosaic/Blue Note label head. The sheer scope of these recordings is staggering. What we get in this amazingly detailed collection is the weightiest argument yet for Braxton's range and depth of field as a musical thinker and his role as a pillar of modern jazz.
