How Henry Threadgill Spends His Sundays 

Source: The New York Times.

For decades, Henry Threadgill, the Pulitzer Prize-winning musician and composer, has been racking up critical accolades, not to mention fans, with his jazz-influenced compositions. On Sept. 23, he will introduce a new work at Lincoln Center: “Dirt, and More Dirt,” which was inspired by the longstanding conceptual-art piece in SoHo, the New York Earth Room. For most of his adult life, Mr. Threadgill, 73, has been a resident of the East Village, estimating that he has lived on almost every street in the neighborhood since moving there in 1975. He currently shares a two-bedroom apartment with his wife, Senti, an administrator at New York University, and his daughter, Nhumi, a college student.
