Henry Grimes at The Stone: Alive at 75
This is just a snapshot of a great, month-long event of historic significance. Other remarkable artists have included Edward "Kidd" Jordan, Marc Ribot and Matana Robertsand the trio Harriet Tubman. Grimes is too humble to steal the spotlight every night from his collaborators. That said, his work is so powerful and passionate; and the scope of his mind so amazingly absorbent, he is always feltespecially when he plays; but even when he is laying out, the musicians of his particular choosing still embody and magnify his vision, like light streaming from a star.
