I can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to Butch.

Henry ThreadgillHere’s Henry Threadgill in a Wall Street Journal article, describing “Old Locks and Irregular Verbs,” his musical tribute to the Maestro:

“I knew at some point I’d find a way, through music, to take my hat off properly to Butch,” Mr. Threadgill said recently at an East Village pastry shop. An invitation to do so came from the Winter Jazzfest, where Mr. Morris memorably performed in 2011, and so Mr. Threadgill set about composing “Old Locks and Irregular Verbs,” a piece that will have its premiere at Judson Church on Jan. 11.
