Jerry Granelli Holds A One-Week Residency at John Zorn's
The Stone
January 3-8, 2017

"One reason why people like improvised music is that it's a direct reflection of life, not something we thought up. It scares you...makes you think you're going to die for a moment...do you have the courage to play? Can I move out of my desires and wants, and into compositional choices?" - Jerry Granelli

Born in 1940, and now in his late 70s , Drummer/Composer/Professor/Sound Painter Jerry Granelli has enjoyed an incomparable career in music from the inside out...way out! The winner of the last NEA Grant awarded ascended from playing with the great pianist Vince Guaraldi at the height of his popularity while simultaneously exploring Free Jazz on San Francisco's thriving after hours sets in the early `60s to establishing academic arts curriculums to indoctrinate and perpetuate alternative musical forms such as Spontaneous Composition in the present. A pioneer of `60s psychedelic sounds, a sideman on a Top 5 pop hit and a session musician for Sly Stone, Granelli is a forward thinking master in the art of music. Since the late `80s, he has recorded over 20 albums as a leader and/or soloist...in jazz and the indefinable beyond.

Mr. Jerry Granelli celebrates 76 years on the planet and 60 years of performance of improvised music.
