THE STONE RESIDENCIES
FRED FRITH
"The last few years have seen recordings of my duos with Evelyn Glennie, John Zorn, Michel Doneda, Chris Cutler, and Annie Lewandowski. In the next 12 months, duos with Barry Guy, John Butcher, Lotte Anker, and Evan Parker also scheduled for release. More than any other form this seems to be the one that resonates with me the most: intense conversations with old and new friends. For this week at The Stone, after kicking off with the FF Trio, the focus will be entirely on spontaneous and wide-ranging dialogues with some of my favorite musicians.”

CLOSED FOR CHRISTMAS EVE AND CHRISTMAS DAY
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!
