The great acoustic bassist, violinist, and poet Henry Grimes continues his very active schedule of concerts, touring, and education with an informal month-long residency at the concert space called the Stone, northwest corner of Ave. C and 2nd St. in Manhattan, http://www.thestonenyc.com/calendar.php, playing various sets of music with many of his favorite musicians during the month. At the invitation of Stone proprietor John Zorn, Henry and Margaret Grimes curated the space for November, Henry’s 75th-birthday month, and many of those booked asked to have Henry join them in their sets, creating a challenging and thrilling opportunity for him to play in an extended series in a select New York City spot with musicians (and a poet) he truly admires.
