back from staatsville upstate nyc for thanksgiving with friends & family. the weeks leading up to the vacation were very busy and interesting. i had two shows with the amazing maestro henry threadgill. the line up was a sextet of henry on flute and bass flute and 3 cellos and 2 double bassists. we had 8 rehearsals and 2 shows in two weeks. i learned quite a lot about harmony and complex rhythms, tone rows and improvising within those parameters. hope to play more shows with this ensemble.
