John Zorn to Play Christmas Show, Partner with Billy Martin

John Zorn will kick off his annual End of Year Improv Week at New York’s The Stone this evening. His benefits include a special Christmas day show this evening.

Zorn will appear with a different lineup every night and all proceeds go to help the performance space pay their rent and upkeep. This evening’s show features Zorn (sax), Ikue Mori (electronics), Ches Smith (drums), Uri Caine (piano), Chuck Bettis (electronics), Nonoko Yoshida (sax), David Watson (guitar), Sylvie Courvoisier (piano), Mark Feldman (violin) and Chris Otto (violin). Of note, on December 28 Zorn’s all-star improv session will feature MMW’s Billy Martin on drums. His previously confirmed December 29 benefit show will also kick off Thurston Moore’s stand at the unconventional space.

Here’s a look at Zorn’s benefit lineups by date
