the stone, ave c and 2nd st nyc

Posted on by Chris Speed

well, it happened, a week in NYC at the same venue! thanks to John Zorn for his generosity in creating a space for musicians to have a focused place to play that actually works economically for all! thanks to all the staff that make playing at The Stone a great experience, including Rob Price Bruce Gallanter, Ian Smith, Kevin Reilly Don DeTora and Joe Merolla! and of course thanks to Chris Tordini, Dave King, Jonathan Finlayson, Jim Black, Mary Halvorson, Brad Shepik, Oscar Noriega, Michael Formanek, Andrew D'Angelo, Anthony Burr,  Mat Maneri and Zeno De Rossi for their extraordinary musicianship! Thanks to Zeno, King and Burr who all flew in from out of town (for a door gig), and special support thanks goes to the incredible Chris Tordini for a whopping 6 sets that included learning the yeah No and Pachora books! and to everyone who came out, without your ears and hearts our work would be meaningless…  if you missed the week and would like to hear some new music that was performed, go to skirl records.
