In for a Penny, In for a Pound is the latest installment in saxophonist/ flutist/composer Henry Threadgills ongoing exploration of his singular system for integrating composition with group improvisation. The music for his band Zooid his main music-making vehicle for the past fourteen years and the longest running band of his illustrious forty plus-year career is no less than his attempt to completely deconstruct standard jazz form, steering the improvisatory language towards an entirely new system based on preconceived series of intervals. His compositions create a polyphonic platform that encourages each musician to improvise with an ear for counterpoint and, in the process, creating striking new harmonies.

The group's a quartet – with tremendous piano from Dave Kikoski, who really seems to bring a lot of energy to the record – and the great Ralph Peterson is on drums, alongside Ugonna Okegwo on bass – but it's clear from the start that Escoffery's tenor is the star of the show – as he burns brightly on the original "Concentric Drift", and steps out on other titles that include "Snibor", "Sweet & Lovely", "So Tender", and "A Cottage For Sale".
On Luminosa, Anat plays dancing originals, interprets Brazilian classics by the likes of Milton Nascimento, and even re-imagines electronica as acoustica with an ingenious arrangement of a Flying Lotus tune. Anat has been named the top clarinetist in both the readers and critics polls in DownBeat, the jazz bible, for multiple years running. And her fluency in the jazz tradition is utterly at one with her flair for Brazilian music. As the Brazilian Press has declared: “Anat is an Israeli who seems like a Brazilian when she plays samba.” A true citizen of the world, Anat speaks a universal language through her horn.
