New Music. New Jazz. Discovered by John Zorn.
John Zorn?s The Stone Commissioning Series celebrates Zorn?s revolutionary venue, The Stone, a non-profit venue that was ?dedicated to the experimental and avant-garde,? and served as a vital spot for new-music in Manhattan?s Alphabet City for over a decade. Held on the last Wednesday of every month, National Sawdust honors the spirit of the Stone, hosting the world premiere new work every month.
As the first of the new year, this special edition of the Stone Series features Tyshawn Sorey front and center: the 2017 MacArthur ?Genius Grant? Winner who was described by The New York Times as a ?a preternaturally talented multi-instrumentalist who has built a career in the territory between standard definitions.?
The jazz drummer and avant-garde composer performs works from himself and others.
