Henry Threadgill's ZOOID at Jazz Gallery - Friday Early Set

I've leave the in-depth reviews to others, but I thought I would share one "sound image" that stuck in my mind.  This may sound silly if you weren't there (or even if you were) but during Threadgill's last solo of the set, I very clearly imagined the following:

Threadgill as the priest of some heretic religion, meting out damnation to his followers in no uncertain terms.  The language was unfamiliar, but the message was clear, "For what you have or haven't done, you are f*cked". 

So pretty much, Threadgill = badass heretic priest, is what I'm saying.
