For over forty years, Henry Threadgill has been celebrated as one of the most forward-thinking composers and multi-instrumentalists in American music. The New York Times has called him “perhaps the most important jazz composer of his generation.” Born in 1944 in Chicago, Threadgill was an early member of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM).
In for a Penny, In for a Pound by Henry Threadgill was named the winner of the Pulitzer
Prize for “distinguished musical composition by an American.” In awarding the prize, the Pulitzer committee call the release “a highly original work in which notated music and improvisation mesh in a sonic tapestry that seems the very expression of modern American life.”
We could not be more ecstatic for Henry and are honored to have been able to help document his work these last 15 years.
