Swiss jazzers occupy the Stone, East Village

European jazz stars of the Zurich-based record label Intakt come to the Stone, John Zorn’s serious recital room, for a two-week fest March 1 – 15 in which they’ll collaborate with veterans of NYC’s downtown improv scene.

March 11: from left, Andrew Cyrille duets w/ Irene Schweizer, and Oliver Lake (no Reggie Workman, sorry!)

I detail some of the shows — and why people think jazz is better loved abroad than at home — in my new column in City Arts-New York.
