Henry Threadgill's Where's Your Cup?, his last recording for Columbia, is the most recent document of the evolution of a band, a sound - a sonic world that is Threadgill's, and which is in constant flux. The members of Threadgill's ensemble here, Make a Move - Tony Cedras on harmonium and accordion, Brandon Ross on guitars, Stomu Takeishi on electric bass, and J. T. Lewis on drums - will each continue to assert themselves in a variety of imaginative musical contexts. On "Laughing Club," Lewis' drum solo leads us into one of Threadgill's compelling themes, with his searing alto sax blazing the way. And the view is expansive - by century's end, Threadgill had delved deeply into South American, African, and Indian traditions.
