Not many improvising musicians show up for the gig in spandex, but Taylor Ho Bynum is an exception. Just don’t expect him to appear in hair-metal meggings, however. This summer, his uniform will be bike shorts and a helmet, as he’s taking his cornet on an 1,800-mile Acoustic Bicycle Tour of the West Coast, all the way from Vancouver to the Mexican border. Having played with such giants as Anthony Braxton, Cecil Taylor, and Wadada Leo Smith, Ho Bynum has long been a sonic adventurer.
