Meredith Monk at Lincoln Center

From NYTimes.com:

Ms. Monk, a singer, composer, dancer, choreographer, director and filmmaker, has been creating multidisciplinary works since the 1960s, when she developed her distinctive form of singing. Cries, clucks and noises that might evoke exotic birdcalls unfold over humming and chanting.

From PopMatters:

One of the true visionaries of jazz, composer-saxophonist-flutist Henry Threadgill occupies a zone of his own. He’s not exactly famous — if asked to name an important living jazz artist, most people would more likely cite Wynton Marsalis. Yet Threadgill isn’t quite obscure, having recorded some of the most challengingly imaginative jazz albums of the last 40 years — some of it, improbably, for major labels.
