Andy Statman, one of his generation’s premier mandolinists and clarinetists, thinks of his compositions and performances as “spontaneous American-roots music and personal, prayerful hasidic music, by way of avant-garde jazz.” This modest man takes for granted that a performer might embody several world in his art, and seems humbled by the fact that his music, like his story, is extraordinary.
Jon Madof will be in residency at TheStoneNYC.com from December 2-7, 2014 with performances by Rashanim, Zion80, and a brand new project called Blivet. 10 sets in all!
The Stone is located at the corner of Ave. C and 2nd St. in NYC. Admission is $15 per set, payable at the door. The full schedule is below.
