It's all happening at the Zooid.

Avant Music News reports on the first release on the hardedge label, a live recording of Threadgill's Zooid group from September 2003. They're not going for the mass market: it's a limited run of 3,000 LPs. I guess Threadgill's back catalog isn't hard enough to get a hold of. Other artists associatied with Hard Edge productions are Sam Rivers, Roscoe Mitchell (see below), John Lurie, Muhal Richard Abrams, Leroy Jenkins, James Chance, Kip Hanrahan, and Wadada Leo Smith, so here's hoping more releases in more user-friendly formats are to come. Per the Hard Edge site, it looks like NYC residents will be able to catch the Zooid crew amid the sleek new confines of MoMA come August 21.
