Tyshawn Sorey

Tyshawn Sorey, one of the "Five Drummers Whose Time Is Now" according to the NY Times, will be curating the month of August at, NYC music venue, The Stone. He'll also be releasing a new CD, Koan, on September 29th on 482 Music. On the disc, Sorey leads an ensemble of guitarist Todd Neufeld and bassist Thomas Morgan. That trio will play a set of compositions from the album in a sort of CD release show at the Stone on August 5th, but that's far from your only chance to catch the drummer and his crew. All three play at various times with guests and solo throughout the month.

Other upcoming shows at the venue include a special Monday night show (usually the venue is closed Mondays) with Laurie Anderson and saxist Colin Stetson on August 3rd. Alto player Tim Berne, who played at the Stone on July 30th with Nels Cline, will appear as part of Terrence McManus' "The Wealthy Industrialists" ensemble on August 11th. Artistic director John Zorn's regular Improv Night benefit will take place on August 23th, and will feature Sorey and variety of guests.
