Village Vanguard, West Village Tuesday July 14 2015 - Sunday July 19 2015
Multi-instrumentalist and composer Henry Threadgill never tires of hatching new concepts, but Zooid—his nimble, sinuous unit with guitarist Liberty Ellman, cellist Christopher Hoffman, tuba player Jose Davila and drummer Elliot Kavee—has proven to be an unusually durable vehicle. Revel in the long-running group's obliquely funky flow here, as Threadgill & Co. play behind In for a Penny, In for a Pound, the group's most compelling recording to date.
