To celebrate saxophonist/futist Henry Threadgill's career retrospective at the 2024 Big Ears Festival, Pi Recordings is proud to release both Volumes I & II of This Brings Us To together in a limited-edition double vinyl set

Featuring his long-running band, Zooid, the two volumes were originally released in 2009 and 2010 even though the music was all recorded at a single session. They were his frst releases in eight years, longer than any hiatus in his career, a time that allowed for the gestation of what was to become Threadgill's signature intervallic system of composition and group improvisation that ultimately won him a Pulitzer Prize for his work In for a Penny, In for a Pound. The original albums were voted the #2 and #5 best releases of the year by The Village Voice Jazz Critics' Poll, about which NPR said "The jazz world is coming to realise that Threadgill is a true idiosyncratic great.... This Brings Us To staggers and lurches and creates dissonances, and it still brings the mad-scientist funk."

Remastered for vinyl by Threadgill's long- time guitarist and producer Liberty Ellman and housed in a gatefold sleeve with archival photos of the band, the release focuses attention on an important turning point in the career of one of music's great iconoclastic masters.

Tracks: White Wednesday Off The Wall / To Undertake My Corners Open / Chairmaster / After Some Time / Sap / Mirror Mirror The Verb / Lying Eyes / This Brings Us To / Extremely Sweet William / Polymorph / It Never Moved
