Hey there! We’ve had a great response to the first part of our Threadgill week giveaways: y’all are very knowledgeable fans of the music. (Also? Criminally handsome/beautiful.) Today’s prize promises to be a little easier, especially for any new initiates out there….

A brand-new copy of the brand-spankin’-new CD of This Brings Us To, Volume 2. This is the second half of what was one of last year’s best jazz releases; both sessions were recorded at one time, just after the band came off tour. Our thanks to the fine folks at Pi for providing this booty.

We are thinking of a number between 1 and 100. Put your guess in the comments of this post. One guess only and please try not to duplicate other selections; check through the comments before entering. Contest deadline: Midnight, Monday, Nov. 8th. The person who nails our number — or comes closest — wins. Good luck!

N.B.! We are also giving away a copy of this same album over at our Facebook page. The only requirement there is that you “like” the page before entering. Same basic format, only a wider number range there: 1 to 200. Feel free to enter both!
