About the Album

“Henry Threadgill’s importance to modern jazz cannot be denied, as there are few composers who possess such a distinguishable methodology to music in general.”
— Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz

“Composer/saxophonist Henry Threadgill has a gift for self-renewal thatís shared by just a handful of jazz greats.”
— Ed Hazell, Boston Pheonix

The first release since 1997ís Where’s Your Cup, Everybodys Mouth’s a Book was recorded in February of 2001 with Bill Laswell at the helm along with Henry. With the addition of Bryan Carrott and Dafnis Prieto, Henry Threadgill and Make A Move have come out with a new sound to compliment Henry’s new compositions and methodology of composing and improvising. Make A Move is a very specific band for a very specific music, and the results from this session are the beginning of what may one day be seen as a revolution in music as important as any that has happened this century. Henry’s electric band has grown immensely since their last studio effort. Everbodys Mouth’s a Book documents what those who have been at Henry’s shows already know; he is one of the great composers of this time, and the release of a new Threadgill album is the planting of a sign post in the road of creative music.
