Freedom Is Wings: Remembering Tom Cora

Various: Freedom Is Wings: Remembering Tom Cora (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

Tom Cora's premature death in 1997 was a tragic blow to contemporary music. One of the founding members of the downtown improvising scene, Tom was a vital member of some of the most important cutting-edge groups of the past twenty years, including Skeleton Crew, The Ex, Curlew, John Zorn's game pieces and Eugene Chadbourne's pre-Shockabily projects.
This special 2-CD set memorial features poignant tributes by many of Tom's most distinguished collaborators, new recordings of Tom's most memorable compositions, and some of Tom's most important recordings, creating an exciting and vivid portrait of one of the most original musicians in new music.
All profits from this set will go directly to Tom Cora's surviving family. -Tzadik
