Henry Threadgill's Zooid
If you hear some heavy percolation in the West Village this week, fear not - it will be the esteemed composer's strings-brass-rhythm-reeds outfit riding the idiosyncrasies of his oddly fetching groove. When Zooid raises the roof, the solos are important, but its the crazed propulsion that bounces around yr head on the way home. The song titles too. It isn't everyone who names a tune "Ambient Pressure Thereby."
