Henry Threadgill awarded Pulitzer Prize

Composer, saxophonist and flautist Henry Threadgill was awarded with the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Music for his 2015 album In for a Penny, In for a Pound.

 

The Pulitzer Prize Board called Threadgill’s album “a highly original work in which notated music and improvisation mesh in a sonic tapestry that seems the very expression of modern American life.”

 

In for a Penny, In for a Pound was released on Pi Recordings last May, and features  Zooid, Threadgill’s longest running band in his over-40-year career. The album was described by the artist as part of his ongoing exploration of his system for integrating composition with group improvisation.

 

The Pulitzer Prize for Music is worth $10,000, and is given to a “distinguished musical composition by an American that has had its first performance or recording in the United States during the year.”
