Free-jazz cornet player Taylor Ho Bynum (pictured) is no stranger to Connecticut. His forthcoming album, Navigation (The Complete Firehouse 12 Recordings), will be released on the Firehouse 12 record label, New Haven's most famous purveyor of avant jazz, experimental music, and noise. Navigation is a four-album set that contains four versions of the same musical experiment by the Taylor Ho Bynum Sextet. The sextet, featuring Jim Hobbs on alto saxophone, Bill Lowe on bass trombone and tuba, Mary Halvorson on guitar, Ken Filiano on bass, and Tomas Fujiwara on drums, are touring in anticipation of the album.
