THE JAZZ SESSION #164: HENRY THREADGILL. Multi-instrumentalist and 
composer Henry Threadgill has always followed his own particular muse, 
and his new album, And This Brings Us To, Vol. 1 (Pi Recordings, 2009), 
is no different. In this interview, Threadgill discusses the musical 
language he’s developed, and the demands it places on the musicians who 
play with him; why he constantly searches for new ways of writing and 
playing; how cell phones and other digital technology are changing the 
way we interact with music and with each other; and the changes in the 
New York scene since the days when he arrived in the city.
