On Friday, September 23rd, Firehouse 12 is pleased to welcome back cornetist and composer Taylor Ho Bynum and his group featuring Bill Lowe, Jim Hobbs, Nicole Mitchell, Tomeka Reid, Ken Filiano, and Tomas Fujiwara as they celebrate the release of Bynum's new album Enter the PlusTet on Firehouse 12 Records.

Critics have called Bynum "a young brass master and compelling composer" (Jon Garelick, Boston Phoenix), "one of the most exciting figures in jazz’s new power generation" (Steve Dollar, Time Out Chicago), and "one of his generation’s top avant-garde figures" (Phillip Lutz, The New York Times). In City Arts, David Adler writes "Bynum is a quick-witted and virtuosic player, steeped in the flutters, growls and extended techniques associated with the late Bill Dixon, the tunefulness of Don Cherry and bluesy humor of Lester Bowie."

Bynum is the leader and co-leader of a number of ensembles in addition to his sextet including his chamber ensemble SpiderMonkey Strings, "little" big band Positive Catastrophe, and collaborations with Tomas Fujiwara, The Thirteenth Assembly, Book of Three and many more. Bynum has a longstanding association with composer Anthony Braxton and has worked with other avant-garde figures like Cecil Taylor, Bill Dixon, and Wadada Leo Smith. Bynum is also a founding partner of Firehouse 12 Records, and is the executive director of Braxton’s Tri-Centric Foundation.
