Where to start with drummer/composer Tyshawn Sorey? What is a better introduction: his work under his own name or as a sideman (with Roscoe Mitchell, Zorn)?

My two favorite CDs of his (or featuring him) are Koan, on 482 Music, and trombonist Samuel Blaser's Pieces of Old Sky, on Clean Feed, which features the same band (guitarist Thomas Neufeld, bassist Thomas Morgan, Sorey on drums). They work really well as companion pieces, and the music is beautiful.

Thanks for the recommendation, I knew he plays on some Clean Feed titles but I´m not familiar with any of them.

I went for a long walk this morning and had it on the earphones, was absolutely blown away by movement III.

I got it in the mail this week and am very very impressed with it. Some parts reminded me of the composition "Live Oaks" from this Tzadik-album:

Met him for the first time at the Art Ensemble of Chicago show in NYC on Friday night. Super nice guy.

Just realized that I saw him play with Vijay Iyer last year. (It was a Trio show -- he was sitting in for Marcus Gilmore, I guess.)
