New World Records Continues its Takeover of the Stone!!! Week Two!

Earl Howard performs in duo with Anthony Davis at the Stone for the second week of the New World Records Fest.

Last week this blog was dedicated to New World Records curatorial turn at John Zorn's Manhattan club, The Stone.  In it, I, as so many people in music are apt to do these days, bemoaned the loss of the representation of music in physical formats (CD/LP/Cassette even) and posited that a way to flip the script is to spend special face time with some of your favorite artists.  A good opportunity for such canoodling would be WEEK TWO of New World Records at the Stone!

Below is the schedule for WEEK TWO, and again I've featured 5 tracks from the New World catalog that focus on some of the artists from this week:

Margaret Lancaster, Larry Polansky, and Matt Gold were all here in the SEM rehearsal space practicing Lois Vierk's piece "io" yesterday. They're performing it on the set with Polansky's piece Piker, as well.
