Henry Threadgill's Untrackable Journey

From Boston Phoenix:

The new The Complete Novus & Columbia Recordings of Henry Threadgill& Air (Mosaic) is an impractical monster. Eight CDs cover the years 1978–1996 from a major American artist who is still barely known, even to music fans. What’s more, everything here is out of print.  In those days (the ’70s, when Air were just coming into being), on a whim, you could pick up a cheap double-vinyl compilation from the likes of Coltrane, Ellington, Monk, Miles, Mingus, and Rollins. Threadgill is in their company.
