Henry Threadgill: The Pulitzer Project

Visionary composer and multi-reedist Henry Threadgill is a living legend whom the New York Times calls a “composer and bandleader of intense, unyielding originality.” In this centennial year of the Pulitzer Prize, he graces Jazz at Lincoln Center in honor of the three African American jazz musicians who have won this prestigious award: Wynton Marsalis, Ornette Coleman, and – as of 2016 – Henry Threadgill! On Friday (9/22), Threadgill will lead his acclaimed Double Up Plus ensemble, featuring saxophone, cello, tuba, drums, and three extraordinary pianists: Jason Moran, David Virelles, and David Bryant. On Saturday (9/23), Threadgill will premiere a new original work and a brand new 15-piece ensemble featuring the aforementioned pianists.
