Eyal Maoz' Abraxas

AFMDA - Join Us and Help Save Lives in Israel

(July 15-23)John Zorn’s renowned THE STONE presents a weeklong residency performed and curated by the Haifa-born, mesmerizing guitarist and composer Eyal Maoz. A mainstay of the NYC downtown music scene, Maoz is notoriously known as the bad (and crazy) boy of the progressive jazz guitar world. For six nights, he brings his new works evoking both chamber grace and cutting edge rock-jazz-Jewish extravaganza noise. Residency includes sets with his iconic bands: Middle-Eastern meets pop and Downtown music of Edom featuring Shanir Blumenkranz (7/18); The X guitar and contemporary classical string quartet premiering new works (7/15); acoustic Jewish project Dimyon (7/16); eccentric, electric Collapse Guitar Quartet (7/17); jazz-based trio 9 Volt featuring Rick Parker and Tim Berne (7/17); the Jewish rock sounds of John Zorn’s Abraxas (7/19); experimental group Hypercolor featuring Lukas Ligeti (7/20).

Tonight:

ABRAXAS plays JOHN ZORN

Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (gimbri) Yoshie Fruchter (guitar) Kenny Grohowski (drums) Eyal Maoz (guitar)
Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz steps out on his own to make one of the most primal and tribal installments in the Book of Angels series. Drawing on his Sephardic roots, Shanir plays gimbri throughout, giving the music a primeval Moroccan edge. Featuring the intense guitar pyrotechnics of Eyal Maoz, Aram Bajakian and Yoshie Fruchter and the atavistic drumming of Kenny Grohowski, this is Ritualistic Jewish Rock for the 21st century by a brilliant young lion from the East Village via Brooklyn/Israel!
