Taylor Ho Bynum keeps his Boston connection
Brookline-raised cornetist crafts frontier jazz with sextet
Over the past decade the Brookline-raised cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum has become a major force on the outward-bound side of the jazz continuum. As a prolific composer and multifarious bandleader, as the co-founder of the respected label Firehouse 12 Records, and as a dogged supporter of avant-garde patriarch Anthony Braxton, Bynum has forged deep ties with many of the most adventurous improvisers associated with jazz over the past half century. His sextet plays Outpost 186 tonight.
