From All About Jazz:
This month at The Stone could be seen as a number of things. It might be a belated and prolonged birthday party for Tyshawn Sorey, who turned 29 in July. Or it could be a send-off for the percussionist/pianist (and erstwhile trombonist), who will be moving to Connecticut to study composition at Wesleyan University. Or it might just be a much-deserved opportunity for a gifted and prolific musical mind.
Sorey took the opportunity to curate the month as a chance to book shows for some of his favorite musicians, both influences of his and people he thinks deserve wider notice. His frequent bandmate Jesse Elder will present a four-hand piano piece and the inventive vocalist Fay Victor will appear with Sorey and legendary trombonist Roswell Rudd. Reed player Ned Rothenberg will play in a quartet with Elder and Sorey will play in Ingrid Laubrock‘s trio, which has a new record coming out on Clean Feed.
