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.
