John Zorn's Stone Commissioning Series presents: Miles Okazaki and Dan Weiss

6pm doors • 7pm show


John Zorn’s Stone Commissioning Series celebrates The Stone, Zorn’s revolutionary venue “dedicated to the experimental and avant-garde,” which served as a vital spot for new music in the East Village for over a decade and now continues in the Glass Box Theatre at the New School. Held on the last Wednesday of every month, National Sawdust honors the spirit of The Stone, hosting artists selected by John Zorn presenting world premieres of new works.

This month’s installment of the Stone Commissioning Series features guitarist Miles Okazaki, whose playing is “utterly contemporary, free from the expectations of what it means to play a guitar in a group setting” (New York Times), with drummer Dan Weiss. They premiere a new piece by Okazaki, to be recorded for a collaborative album later this year.
