Composer, bandleader, and interdisciplinary collaborator, Taylor Ho Bynum, is a performer on cornet and various brass instruments. Bynum’s ongoing association with composer Anthony Braxton is recognized as one of the most fruitful partnerships of Braxton’s long career, and his work with Bill Dixon produced some of the departed trumpet-innovator’s late masterpieces.

For the past six years, the Taylor Ho Bynum Sextet has been Bynum’s primary working ensemble. Releasing albums and performing throughout the World, the Sextet supergroup is made up of Jim Hobbs (alto saxophone), Bill Lowe (bass trombone, tuba), Mary Halvorson (guitar), Ken Filiano (bass), and Chad Taylor (drums). The group’s 2007 debut, The Middle Picture Was hailed by The Wire Magazine as “the shape of jazz to come.”

Intermission musical selections and ambience provided by Guest DJ, Josh Weinstein (KDHX All Soul No Borders).
