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 Roberts
and 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.
