Russ & Daughters Taps John Zorn for ‘Music Nights’ Program at Orchard Street Cafe
Legendary downtown Jazz musician John Zorn is lending his talents to another Lower East Side stalwart. In January, Russ & Daughters introduced a new monthly Jazz performance series at its Orchard Street cafe, and the multi-instrumentalist curated the entirety of the 2017 schedule.
Tonight’s show is with Steve Bernstein; 8pm, no cover.
Zorn has been involved in the local Jazz scene for decades. His home base for the last dozen years has been The Stone, an experimental incubator space in Alphabet City. The venue operates as a non-profit, prohibits food or drinks, and often features musicians in weeklong residencies. However, it was recently announced that The Stone will end its run in February 2018, and that a new space is sought.
“Music has been an integral part of the restaurant’s experience since it opened in 2014, and it is a distinct honor to welcome some of our favorite musicians,” notes a post on the Russ & Daughters Facebook page.
