Kory asked me to sit in for him this week for his drum-focused Saturday show, Rhythm Heads, while he’s off on tour. I spent the last week thinking out was going to play a bunch of Henry Threadgill Zooid and Liberty Ellman Sextet, however, some weird scrambling in my brain confused Elliot Humberto Kavee and Damion Reid, so I made this show about Reid, which worked out pretty well. It’s an hour of music featuring the drumming of Damion Reid which is all kinds of fun.
