Visiting San Francisco on a rare West Coast excursion, poet Steve Dalachinsky shares the bill with Bay Area poetry and music trio Cosmic Diaspora, fresh from its turn through New York City, as part of guitarist/composer John Schott's week-long residency at The Stone, the famed improvised music space run by John Zorn. Cosmic Diaspora also features Joshua Horowitz on keyboards and accordion and Jake Marmer, voice and poetry. Free.

It’s unlikely that any one poet has been as immersed, and for so long, in the New York and European jazz and improvised music scenes, or has collaborated in some manner with as many of its extraordinary artists, as Dalachinsky. He has written liner notes for the recordings of Anthony Braxton, Charles Gayle, James “Blood” Ulmer, Rashied Ali, Roy Campbell, Matthew Shipp and Roscoe Mitchell, among others.
