Very Very Circus: The Music of Henry Threadgill

Presented in conjunction with a special conversation with the composer and saxophonist around the release of his forthcoming biography Easily Slip Into Another World (Knopf), Long Play presents a reunion concert of Henry Threadgill’s Very Very Circus, his renowned ensemble from the early 1990s.

This concert features an all star lineup of Threadgill alumnus, including Brandon Ross (guitar), Marcus Rojas (tuba), Jose Davilla (tuba), Curtis Fowlkes (trombone), Gene Lake (drums) and Yosvany Terry (saxophone).  The conversation and concert are co-presented by our friends at Pi Recordings.
