John Zorn’s renowned THE STONE presents a weeklong residency performed and curated by mesmerizing guitarist and composer Eyal Maoz. A mainstay of the NYC downtown music scene, Maoz is notoriously known as the bad (and crazy) boy of the progressive jazz guitar world. For six nights, he brings his new works evoking both cutting edge rock-jazz-Jewish extravaganza noise and chamber grace. Residency includes sets with his iconic bands: Middle-Eastern meets pop and Downtown music of Edom featuring Shanir Blumenkranz (7.18); The X guitar and contemporary classical string quartet premiering new works (7.15); acoustic Jewish project Dimyon (7.16); eccentric, electric Collapse Guitar Quartet (7.17); jazz-based trio 9 Volt featuring Rick Parker and Tim Berne (7.17); the Jewish rock sounds of John Zorn’s Abraxas (7.19); experimental group Hypercolor featuring Lukas Ligeti (7.20); and more.
