Save the date!
Visionary composer and multi-reedist Henry Threadgill is a living legend whom the New York Times calls a “composer and bandleader of intense, unyielding originality.” In this centennial year of the Pulitzer Prize, he graces Jazz at Lincoln Center in honor of the three African American jazz musicians who have won this prestigious award: Wynton Marsalis, Ornette Coleman, and – as of 2016 – Henry Threadgill! On Friday (9/23), Threadgill will lead his Double Up Plus ensemble, whose debut album won significant praise, including the New York Times’ assertion that it’s “just as easy to picture in Pulitzer contention.” The group features saxophone, cello, tuba, drums, and three extraordinary pianists: Jason Moran, David Virelles, and David Bryant. Join them on Friday night for “Double Up Plus plays Double Up Plus.”...
