John Zorn's Stone Commissioning Series presents: Wendy Eisenberg

6pm doors • 7pm show


New Music. New Jazz. Curated by John Zorn.

The John Zorn 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. 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 concert features improvising guitarist, banjo player, vocalist, and poet Wendy Eisenberg. For this program, they have written a suite of pieces for improvisers, to be performed by their collaborative quintet Gloyd. Gloyd consists of Eisenberg on guitar, Donald Warner Shaw on saxophones and bass, Andy Allen on saxophones, bassoon, and flute, Neil Cloaca Young on drums, and Ruth Garbus on vocals.
