Quick round-up: new Henry Threadgill, the Feelies and Horace Tapscott re-issues

As mentioned in the recent Destination-Out post, the great Henry Threadgill will release a new album, called This Brings Us To, with his group Zooid on 27th of October (US date?). While I love his work with Air and his 80's Sextet and Sextett records, I've not been quite as taken with his later work. But the man is a favorite nonetheless and I am very much looking forward to this one. Destination-Out will preview the record next monday. There's a review of the record at Music & More (I've yet to read the whole thing myself, though).

The re-issue of the Feelies classic Crazy Rhythms is finally out on Bar/None after some trouble with the previous attempt by Water. Sasha Frere-Jones has some thoughts and valuable info on the Feelies and that record on his New Yorker blog.

Also re-issued is the great 1989 record The Dark Tree by pianist Horace Tapscott. Stef at Free Jazz has revied it here.
