May 2006 at the Stone 
curated by Derek Bailey and Karen Brookman

Derek Bailey loved New York City. He loved playing here and he loved being here. It was his hope to come back to New York to both curate and play at The Stone for the month of May. Alas, it was not to be. Drawing largely from his original list, Karen Brookman has helped realize his vision. Many of the players are travelling great distances to participate in this month long tribute to one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century—a man who helped change the world through improvisation. We all miss him.
