Description:Since the late 1970s, the alto saxophonist Henry Threadgill has been synonymous with a certain sort of switchblade-wielding, gravity-flouting avant-garde performance. One-third of the famed trio Air, perhaps the 1980s’ most lauded free-jazz group, he won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2016 for his album In for a Penny, In for a Pound. He makes his Kennedy Center debut with his Ensemble Double Up, a group that can often make a momentous sound that drives its constantly morphing, evolving music.
